-x - 4y = -8 ---(1)

x + 4y = 8 ---(2)

Multiply equation (1) by -1

x + 4y = 8

So both equations represent the same line and all the points on the line is a solution.

Hence the system of equations has infinitely many solutions.

They must satisfy y = (8 - x)/4

-x - 2y = -2 ---(2)

From equation (1)

2y = -x - 2

From equation (2)

-2y = x - 2

So both equations have the same slope of -1/2 and different y intercepts which means they are parallel lines.

Hence, the system of equations has no solution.

I am told that both answers are wrong

Hi,

can you recheck your answer I have been told that both parts are wrong
