Re: what is the Value of C?

Hi Hannibal lecter,

As you know two points you can get the equation of the straight line in the form y = mx + d.  Substitute that value of y into y = x squared to get a quadratic in x.  It should be easy to factorise as you know (x-1) is one factor.  The other will give the x coordinate of C.
