Steve,
any explanation given here will look remarkably like whatever is in your text, or you can find using google or wolframalpha.
If you have a particular problem, come back with a more specific question.
If you know what a linear equation is, a system is just a set of equations. You can use as many variables as you like.
There are various methods of solving such systems. Read up on them.
