    Substitute x for y in first equation and solve for x. If they were not exactly equal, insert that value into the second equation and solve for y. Check by inserting both values into the first equation.

    Combination method

    Add the two equations.

    6y = 6

    y = 1

    Insert that value into one equation and solve for x. Check by inserting both values into the other equation.
