Putnam Exam Seminar Quiz 6 Fall 2010 October 25 Problem 1. Find all ordered pairs of real numbers ( x,y ) which satisfy the system of equations x + y = 3 3 x + 2 y = 14 . Problem 2. Curves A , B , C and D are defined in the plane as follows: A = ± ( x,y ) : x 2 - y 2 = x x 2 + y 2 ² , B = ± ( x,y ) : 2 xy + y x 2 + y 2 = 3 ² , C = ³ ( x,y ) : x 3 - 3 xy 2 + 3 y = 1 ´ , D = ³ ( x,y ) : 3 x 2 y - 3 x - y 3 = 0 ´ .
