You are given what y is equal to in the first equation....use this value in the second equation.

2x + 3 (x-8) = 1 solve for 'x'

2x + 3x - 24 = 1

5x = 25

x = 5 now use this value of x in EITHER of the equations to find y

y = x -8

y = 5-8

y=-3

y=x-8

2x=3y=1

2x+3(x-8)=1

2x+3x-24=1

5x-24=1

5x=25

\(\boxed{x=5}\), then plug it in to one of the equations

y=x-8

y=5-8

\(\boxed{y=-3}\)

No this problem has ONE solution, the ordered pair (5,-3) is the ONLY solution. So ONE solution

These are equations for lines......where they cross (intersect) is the solution to the system......straight lines only intersect at one point....one solution.
