You have two unknowns. For which one do you want to solve?
If you want to find both x and y then you need one more equation.

There are many solutions for this equation.
Draw a graph of the line you mentioned. All points which pass the line , the corresponding x-, y- coordinates are solutions

Graph it, then count all the points in that graph, all those are the solutions.

thanks in advance
