Simultaneous Equations (Non-Linear)

Rate this resource

This file provides practice at solving pairs of simultaneous equations where at least one is not linear. The pairs of graphs and the coordinates of the points of intersection can be revealed.

The first sheet deals with the intersection of a straight line with y=x2 where all the solutions have integer values. The second sheet is similar but there may be half values in the answers. The next two sheets deal with the intersection of a straight line with a more general quadratic and the intersection of two parabolas. The final interactive sheet gives practice at finding the points of intersection of a straight line and a circle.
