    Multiplying the first equation by 2:\[2x = -8y + 8 \]

    Also, subtracting 8y from both sides in the second equation:\[2x = -8y + 8\]

    We now have the following equations:\[2x = -8y + 8\\2x = -8y + 8\]

    You can mentally arrange the unknows at the left hand side. and see that the second equation is the first one multiplied by 2

    so you have only one equation with two unknows. that means a lot of solutions.
