#### Explanation:

When trying to find values of x and y in a system, check first which value can be easily changed so that it becomes equal. In this case let's pick the y, but let us write first the system in its format.

Now we have:

Now we need to solve for x:

-we cancel the squared expression and use only

Now we can solve for y by taking any of the two equations:

#y=x^2=1^2=1 #

-#y=2x-1= 2*1-1=1#

You have now the solution for both values
