Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What math are you in because you can either put this in a matrix which is faster or you can write it all out by hand

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then you have to both x and the other into the last equation and solve for the last variable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can check your answer by plugging your answers for x, y, and z into the first equations. They should work for all 3 equations

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@rshextall but can you show me how to do the matrix, it's in the next lesson of the book so i think i should learn it too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to learn the rules of matrices. They're a bit more in depth than we can really get into on here. If you like I can help you with your homework with it when you get it
