Since the value of y in the first equation is 2, we can multiply the opposite of 2 to the second equation to eliminate y. So what is the opposite of 2?

What is the y-term of the second equation? It is just y. When you add 2y to -2y you get zero and the y-terms will be eliminated. If you multiply the second equation by -2, the y-term of the second equation will become -2y. Then when you add equations, the y-terms will be eliminated.
