(x,y,z) = (5,4,-8)

sure. One way is to do elimination by adding and subtracting multiples of one equation from another.

subtract 2*second from 3*first:

6x+6y+9z = -18

6x+10y+8z = 6

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

-4y + z = -24

subtract first from third

-y - z = 4

now add those two to get

-5y = -20

y=4

so, z=-8 and x=5
