You're right! I've fixed it, and improved the TeX. Worried that I let that slip by!

I think there is a sign error in the second equation in part b.

Set up the randomisation again so that all numbers are integers.
In part a, the $x$ coefficient of the second equation is a multiple of the coefficient in the first equation.
In part b, the LCMs of the $x$ and $y$ coefficients are strictly larger than any of the coefficients.

 I've made sure that the solutions are integers but that has meant that the question is not randomised.
 I'm also having a little trouble in centering a section of part a) which includes an overline and a subtraction.
 Otherwise, I've made all the changes you requested.

Saved a checkpoint:
I'd prefer it if you made sure that the solutions are always integers. Rounding errors are a distraction here. Generate the solutions first, then come up with a pair of independent equations.
I'm not sure about the way you've set out subtracting one equation from another  it's not obvious that the minus signs cancel out when there's a negative coefficient. This is one of the big problems that trips people up when doing this.
Be careful with, for example, "We have to multiply the entire first equation by 3, not just the x term to ensure we do not change the value of the equation."  an equation doesn't have a 'value'. You could instead say that you want to keep the same solution.
Right at the end of the advice, I don't like $8(5)$ for multiplication  $8 \times 5$ is much more conventional.

It won't let me put visibility conditions on it. :(

To account for errors made by the student in earlier calculations, replace question variables with answers to earlier parts.
In order to create a variable replacement, you must define at least one variable and one other part.
Variable  Answer to use  Must be answered?  

The variable replacements you've chosen will cause the following variables to be regenerated each time the student submits an answer to this part:
These variables have some random elements, which means they're not guaranteed to have the same value each time the student submits an answer. You should define new variables to store the random elements, so that they remain the same each time this part is marked.
