$x = 5$
$y = 1$

Explanation:

Adding up the two equations $x + y = 6$ and $x - y = 4$
We get
$x + y + x - y = 6 + 4$
or
$2 x + 0 = 10$
or
$2 x = 10$
or
$x = \frac{10}{2}$
or
$x = 5$--------------------Ans $1$

By putting the value of $x = 5$ in the equation $x + y = 6$
we get
$5 + y = 6$
or
$y = 6 - 5$
or
$y = 1$-------------------Ans $2$
