If you were to use the elimination method to solve the following system, choose the new system of equations that would result after the variable z is eliminated in the first and second equations, then the second and third equations.
x + y – 3z = –8
2x + 2y + z = 12
3x + y – z = –2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0These are the answer choices. so it would be the second choice right? 7x + 7y = 28 3x + y = –2 7x + 7y = 28 5x + 3y = 10 x + y = –8 3x + y = –2 x + y = –8 5x + 3y = 14
