Hint: Add the given equations to determine the value of x.

Let us consider
   $2x - 3y = - 8$ $ \to (1)$
   $4x + 3y = 2$ $ \to (2)$
On adding equation $(1)$ and $(2)$ we will get
$\
   \Rightarrow 6x = - 6 \\
   \Rightarrow x = - 1 \\
\ $
$\therefore x = - 1$
The value of $x = - 1$
NOTE: While adding, focus on the signs. Add the given equations to determine the value of x.
