So I have two equations that intersect: z=x2+y2 which I know is a paraboloid, and z=x2+(y-1)2 which I know is also a paraboloid shifted one unit in the positive y-direction. However I attempted to find the intersection curve and only way I could think to do that was by setting the two equations equal to each other, x2+y2=x2+(y-1)2 however that ended inconclusively. Any help with this would be appreciated. I have to graph it too.
