    x-6y+3z=0..........................1 2x-5y+8z=7........................2 x+7y-4z=13.........................3 Take eq 1 x= 6y-3z sub this in equation 2 and 3 2( 6y-3z)-5y+8z=7..................2 6y-3z +7y-4z=13.....................3 simplify 12y-6z-5y+8z=7 then it be 7y+2z=7................2 multiplying by 7 13y-7z=13..............3 multiplying by 2 49y+14z=49 .............2 26y-14z=26...............3 adding both equations to each other to get 75 y = 75 then y=1 sub value of y in 2 or 3 to get 7+2z=7 2z=0 z= zero sub z= zero , y =1 , in eq 1 x= 6y-3z x=6 Hope I'm right . and You are welcome .. regards
