I pretty much know this problem
4y+2x=18
3x+6y=26
multiply 3= 6x+12y= 54
multiply 2 = 6x+12= 52
The answer is 2 but I am not sure what to do next since both x and y were canceled out.

When you multiplied the second equation by 2 your result is wrong.
It should be: 6x + 12y=52
NOT: 6x12y=52 
2x+4y=18
3x+6y=26
Notice I changed to order in the top equation.
Your equations are parallel lines, no solutions
