There are many ways of finding a solution of linear equation in 2 variables
1. By substitution - You can explicitly find the value of one variable in terms of another and then plug it into another equation.
2. By elimination - You can multiply both the equations with different numbers, such that the coefficient of either of the 2 variables becomes same and now you can subtract the 2 equations.
3. You can also use a matrix to solve the linear equation
4. Graphical method - you can plot the 2 equations on a graph and read the point where they intersect.
