# How do you solve 3x - 8y = 4 and 2x - 6y = 2?

These are two linear equations and you may "solve" the system formed by the two together. This means finding a point, of coordinates $x , y$, which is simultaneously solution of the first and second equation:
Now substitute the values for $x = 4$ and $y = 1$ into the equations to see if they satisfy them.
