What is solving by substitution?
You can solve by substitution when you plug in either the value of x or the value of y into one of the two equations.
Example:
x = y + 1
y + x = 21
Here, you can just replace the value of x or y + 1 in y + x = 21
y + y + 1 = 21
2y + 1 = 21
2y = 20
y = 10 and x = y + 1 = 10 + 1 = 11
What is solving by elimination?
You can solve by elimination when you eliminate either x or y by adding the two equations. We may need to rewrite one or both equations!
Example:
x = y + 1
y + x = 21
Let us rewrite x = y + 1 as x - y = 1 and then add the two equations to eliminate y.
x - y = 1
y + x = 21
Let us add the two equations.
2x - y + y = 1 + 21
2x + 0 = 22
2x = 22
x = 11
Using y + x = 21, y + 11 = 21, so y = 21 - 11 = 10.
