Solve the following system of linear equations:
2x - 3y + 6z = -12
5x + 2y - 8z = 29
7x + 6y + 4z = 49
First, I did elimination for the first two equations. I multiplied the first equation by two, and the second equation by 3.
4x - 6y + 12z = -24
15x + 6y - 24z = 87
That gets me:
19x - 12z = 63.
The next thing I have written down that the teacher told us is:
11x + 16z = 25
How did my teacher get to this point?
