The solution is $(-4,4)$

Work Step by Step

$1$. First equation $y=-{\dfrac{1}{2}}x+2$.The slope is $m=-{\dfrac{1}{2}}$ and the y-intercept is $b=2$.Graph the first equation on a graph (blue line) $2.$ The second equation is $y={\frac{1}{2}}x+6$.The slope is $m={\frac{1}{2}}$ and the y-intercept is $b=6$.Graph the second equation (red line) $3.$ The two equations intersect at $(-4,4)$ so that's the solution.
