# Quadratic simultaneous equations?

What are the different methods of working out a quadratic simultaneous equation?

I know there is factorisation but is there anything else?

(An example of a quadratic simultaneous equation:)

x(squared) + 8x + 16 = 0

I don't understand how this can be simultaneous equations, when there is only one equation in one unknown.

For solving a single quadratic equation, have you seen the standard quadratic solution:

roots = [ - b +/- sqrt( b^2 - 4ac) ] / [ 2a ]
