#### Answer

x = $\frac{1}{2}$
y = 2

#### Work Step by Step

x = $\frac{3}{4}$y -1
8x - 5y = -6
substitude x to the second equation
8($\frac{3}{4}$y -1 ) - 5y = -6 use the distributive property
6y - 8 - 5y = -6 simplify
y = 8 - 6 add 8 to both sides
y = 2
substitude y = 2 to the first equation
x = $\frac{3}{4}$ (2) -1
x = $\frac{3}{2}$ -$\frac{2}{2}$
x = $\frac{1}{2}$
