What am i doing wronge? every time I try this problem i get x and y to cancel one another out. Am i doing something wronge or is there no real answer to this problem?

y=1+4x
8x-2y=4
You are correct. There is no solution. The key to this is to check if variables cancel each other out, and that is the giveaway to a "No Solution" answer.

For the record, if a system of two linear equations (that is to say two line equations) do not have a solution then the two lines have the same slope.
