How do you solve the system using the elimination method for 3x-2y=2 and -6x+4y=-4?

There is no solution; these equations are equivalent.

Explanation:

Multiplying both sides of of the first equation
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$3 x - 2 y = 2$
by $\left(- 2\right)$
gives the second equation
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$- 6 x + 4 y = - 4$

They are not really different equations.
