The easiest way to use substitute is to substitute $x + 1$ for y in the second equation.
After you have solved for x, substitute its value into the first equation and then solve for y.

#### Explanation:

Substitute $x + 1$ for y in the second equation:

$x + 1 = - x + 3$

$2 x = 2$

$x = 1$

Substitute the value for x into the first equation:

$y = 1 + 1$

$y = 2$

The solution is the point $\left(1 , 2\right)$
