Do I place the following two equations on the same line as they both represent the same lines. Pleas show. Thanks much.

3x-2y=8
6x+4y=16
I am sorry I am not too big on graphing.

no they are not the same line. because if you had reduced 6x+4y=16---> you would get 3x+2y=8

there is one thing that is different which is the sign. One of them is +2y and the other is -2y therefore they would not be the same.

ummm how do you want to show the graph..umm i would reduce them into y=..which will help because it would be in slope-intercept form..where you can find the intercept

-3x + 2y =8
3x + 2x=8
