How would you explain to a 6th grader the difference between solving a system of equations by the algebraic method and the graphical method?

When solving a system containing 2

Eqs, the point of intersection is the

solution. The system may be solved

algebraically or by graphing.

When solving algebraically, you use the

Elimination or Substitution Method.

The coordinates of the point calculated

is the solution.

When solving graphically, graph the 2

Eqs and the point where they intersect

is the solution.

I hope this is helpful.
