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.
