I can't ahve my aad or mom checkin this cause they have no clue on this but i did the problems and need feed bac.
solve the system using linear combination method
12. 3x+ 2yz=8
3x+4y+5z=14
x3y+4z=14
(my answer was (1,1,3))
16. x+y2z=5
x+2y+z=8
2x+3yz=13
(my answer was infinite solution)
18. 2x+y+6z=1

#12 and 16 are correct
check your arithmetic for 18
I got (4,3,2) and those values work for all 3 equations.
(You do know that you can check your answer yourself by merely substituting your values into each equation, don't you?)
