The elimination method only works with simultaneous equations, hence another equation is needed here for it to be solvable.

How do you solve 2x plus 2y equals 4 and 4x plus y equals 1?

2x + 2y = 44x + y = 1There are many methods you can use to solve this system of equations (graphing, elimination, substitution, matrices)...but no matter what method you use, you should get x = -1/3 and y = 7/3.

Can you solve the system using elimination 3x plus 9y equals 3?

No. Solving equations in two unknowns requires two independent equations. Since you have only one equation there is no solution.
