"Solving" means finding ordered pairs that satisfy the equation.

Your equation is a circle, and there are an infinite number of ordered pairs that will work.

Did you mean to put it in the standard form of a circle equation?

16x^2+16y^2-16x+24y-3=0

16(x^2 - x + .....) + 16(y^2 + (3/2)y + ... = 3

16(x^2 - x + 1/4) + 16(y^2 + (3/2)y + 9/16) = 3 + 4 + 9

16(x-1/2)^2 + 16(y+3/4) = 16

(x-1/2)^2 + (y+3/4)^2 = 1

all vital info about the circle is now obvious.
