If you want to create an equation that has y eliminated, you need to make the coefficient of y in the equation x + y = 7 the same as the coefficient of y in the equation 2x + 3y = 10.

Good work! 3 is correct. Therefore if you multiply each term in the equation x + y = 7 by 3, the coefficient of y will become the same as the coefficient of y in the equation 2x + 3y = 10.
