 Click here to see ALL problems on Linear-systems Question 175338: I am having trouble understanding, "solving systems of equations by graphing." Ex: x+y=6 x-y=4 Then, I started to try and solve and find the ordered pair that worked for both equations. I only got this far, then I get confused: x+y=6 -x -x ______ y=-1x+6 x-y=4 -x -x _______ -y=-1+4 Answer by KnightOwlTutor(293)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x+y=6 x-y=4 Add each colum and you get 2x (+y-y=0)=6+4 2x=10 divide both sides by two and x=5 if x is 5 then y must equal 1 5+1=6 5-1=4
