Homework Help: algebra

Posted by struggling on Saturday, May 26, 2007 at 8:05pm.

Solve the system by addition or substitution.
16x-4y=20
y=4x-4
I ask for help with this and forgot to add the problem. can anyone help me understand how to do this?


16x-4y=20
-4x+y=-4
___________


16x-4y=20
(4)(-4x+y=-4)
______________


16x-4y=20
-16x+4y=-16
______________


0=4
answer: empty set


16x - 4(4x-4) = 20
16x - 16x - 16 = 20
-16 = 20

It doesn't work. Anonymous is right. Empty Set.
