solve for x in the second equation ...

x = 2y-2

substitute (2y-2) for x in the first equation, then solve for y; you should get two solutions.

$\displaystyle (x-1)^2+y^2=9$--1

$\displaystyle 2y-x=2$--2, $\displaystyle x=2y-2$

Substitute $\displaystyle x=2y-2$ into the first equation.

$\displaystyle (2y-2-1)^2+y^2=9$

$\displaystyle (2y-3)^2+y^2=9$

$\displaystyle 4y^2-12y+9+y^2-9=0$

$\displaystyle 5y^2-12y=0$

$\displaystyle y(5y-12)=0$

$\displaystyle y=0$ and $\displaystyle y=\frac{12}{5} $

When $\displaystyle y=0$

$\displaystyle x=2(0)-2$

$\displaystyle x=-2$

When $\displaystyle y=\frac{12}{5} $

$\displaystyle x=2(\frac{12}{5}-2) $

$\displaystyle x=\frac{14}{5} $

$\displaystyle x=-2, y=0$
$\displaystyle x=\frac{14}{5} , y=\frac{12}{5}$
