Systems Involving Non Linear Equations

As expected, solving systems of linear equations can be extended into systems involving non linear equations such as quadratic equations. Examples of quadratic equations include parabolas, circles, ellipses, and hyperbolas. One important distinction between these systems and the previous linear … Continue reading
