Solve using the elimination method. Show your work. If the system has no solution or an infinite number of solutions, state this.

-x – 8y = 43

4x + 32y = 172

m1 = -A/B = 1/-8 = -1/8,

m2 = -4/32 = -1/8,

The solution is the point where the 2 lines intersect, but they have equal

slopes and are, therefore, parallel and

do not intersect. So there is no solution.
