Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

We have the equation as

.4x+.4y=-18 ...eqn(1)

-.8x+-.8y=-36 ...eqn(2)

2*eqn(!)+eqn(2),eliminate y

2*.4x-.8x =2*-18-36

.8x-.8x=-36-36

0=-72(cannot be true)

As it is not valid therefore,the system has no solution.

Thus no solution exist for this system.(answer)
