solve the system by elimination.

6x-6y-4z=-10

-5z+4y-z=-12

2x+3y-2z=9

Multiply the last equation (both sides) by 2. That gives you

4x + 6y - 4z = 18

Add that to

6x - 6y - 4z = -10

That gives you

10x -8z = 8

So far, we have eliminated the variable y.

Use similar tricks to get rid of x or z.

I believe your second equation is typed incorrectly. Did you mean

-5x +4y -z = -12?
