Solving Linear Equations and Inequalities
Solve by eliminating x (this is solving 3 linear equations) then substitute to the other two equation
x + y + 5z =2 (1)
4x  3y + 5z =3 (2)
3x  2y + 5z=1 (3)
my teacher gave me the answer she said the solution set for this should be {(7,52)}
pleeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaseee :(

Why eliminate x when the obvious choice would be to eliminate z ??
#2  #1 > 3x  4y = 1 **
#2  #3 > x  y = 2 or x = y+2
sub that into **
3(y+2)  4y = 1
3y + 6  4y = 1
y = 5
y = 5 , then
x = 7
back into #1:
7 + 5 + 5z = 2
5z = 10
z = 2
so the solution is (7,5,2)
Depending on the coefficients in the equations, it is often easier to use a combination of methods, rather than one rigid approach

xis what needs to be eliminated. . . my teacher already try eliminated the z

Ok,
multiply the first by 4, then subtract the 2nd
multiply the first by 3, then subtract the third.
Now you have two equations with y's and z's
carry on
