y = -x + 3

y = x + 1

rewrite

y + x = 3

y - x = 1

to eliminate the variable x, add the 2 equations together. Since x + -x = 0, the x variable is eliminated

ADD

y + x = 3

y - x = 1

2y = 4

y = 2

to find x, substitute y = 2 in

y + x = 3

2 + x = 3

x = 1

CHECK

x = 1, y = 2

y - x = 1

2 - 1 = 1

1 = 1
