Solve by graphing(I can't show the graphs, but the problem and my working is as follows)

Question

3x+2y=8

6x+4y=16

Working

3x+2y=8

6x+4y=16

I put 3x+2y=8 into terms of y so it became 2y=8-3x.

Then I divided that equation by 2 so it became:y=4-3/2x

I replaced x with values from 0-2 and worked the problems out, resulting in this: x=0 y=4

x=1 y=5/2 or 2 1/2

x=2 y=1

I repeated the process with the second string and came out with this:

x=0 y=4

x=1 y=5/2 or 2 1/2

x=2 y=1

since the solutions were identical I decided that the lines coincide.
