3x + y + z = 4
2x + 2y + 3z = 3
x + 3y + 2z = 5 A. 3x + y + z = 4 x + 3y + 2z = 5 → 6x + 2y + 2z = 8 (-­)x + 3y + 2z = 5 5x ­- 1y = 3 B. 3x + y + z = 4 2x + 2y + 3z = 3 → 9x + 3y + 3z = 12 (­-)x + 3y + 2z = 5 8x +1z = 7 C. 3x + y + z = 4 x + 3y + 2z = 5 → 9x + 3y + 3z = 12 (-­)x + 3y + 2z = 5 8x + 1z = 17 D. x + y + z = 4 x + 3y + 2z = 5 → 3x + y + z = 4 (-­)3x + 9y + 6z = 15 ­-8y – ­ 5z = ­-9

What is the solution to the system of equations shown below?

x-­ y + z = 0
-5x + 3y ­- 2z = ­-1
2x ­ – y + 4z = 11

a. (0, 3, 3)

Which answer correctly shows the first step that can be used to correctly solve the
system of equations?

5x + 2y = 4
3x + 4y + 2z = 6
7x + 3y + 4z = 29

 A. 3x + 4y + 2z = 6 → 3x + 4y + 4z = 6 7x + 3y + 4z = 29 → (­-)7x + 3y + 4z = 29 -4x ­- y =- ­23 B. 3x + 4y + 2z = 6 → 6x + 8y + 4z = 12 7x + 3y + 4z = 29 → (-­)7x + 3y + 4z = 29 -x + 5y = ­-17 C. 3x + 4y + 2z = 6 → 6x + 8y + 4z = 67x + 3y + 4z = 29 → (-­)7x + 3y + 4z = 2 -x + 5y =- ­23 D. 3x + 4y + 2z = 6 → 6x + 8y + 4z = 12 7x + 3y + 4z = 29 → (-­)7x + 3y + 4z = 29 -x + 8y = 41
