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?

Thanks!

4 x - 6 y + 12 z = -24

7 x + 6 y + 4 z = +49

------------------------

11 x + 0 + 16 z = 25

x = 3

y = 5

z = -.5
