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

##### 1 Answer

Solution below.

#### Explanation:

#3x-y=-4#

#3x=-4+y#

#3x+4=y#

#y=3x-4#

#6x-2y= -8#

#6x-2(3x+4)= -8#

#6x-6x-8=-8#

#-8=-8 #

**Since #-8# is always equal to #-8#, #x# can be any real number. So the solution is infinite solutions**.
