If you were to use the substitution method to solve the following system, choose the new system of equations that would result if x was isolated in the second equation.
3x + y + 2z = 1
x + 2y – z = –8
3x – y – 3z = 18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, actually, that's the first step. You still have to substitute the expression for x into the other equations to get the "new" systems of equations.
