    x = 4, y = 9

    Step-by-step explanation:

    (1) x + 8y = 76

    (2) 8x + 8y = 104

    7x = 28 Subtracted (1) from (2)

    (3) x = 4 Divided each side by 7

    4 + 8y = 76 Substituted (3) into (1)

    8y = 72 Subtracted 32 from each side

    y = 9 Divided each side by 8

    The solution is x = 4, y = 9
