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.
