Helpme solve this please i am really stuck
x+3y=8
x=43y

collect the like terms

You cannot do that on a system of equations like this

Try manipulating the equations so that all terms are on the left side. You may find that a solution does not exist.

x+3y=8
x=43y
By substitution, you get:
(4  3y) + 3y = 8
Since the yterms cancel out, there is no solution.
I hope this helps a little more.
