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 y is eliminated in the first and second equations, then the second and third equations. 3x – y + 3z = 1 4x + y – 6z = 3 4x – 2y + 3z = –3 7x – 3z = 4 12x – 9z = 3 7x – 3z = 4 4x – 6z = 3 3x + 3z = 1 12x – 9z = 3 3x + 3z = 1 4x – 6z = 3

    I prefer a question at a time. I'd help you with the first.

    Start by adding the top two equations.

    I know it's either C/D, cause 3x+3z=1 is what you get when you eliminate y from 1st/2nd equation.

    nvm other way around. It's A/B

    Cause you get 7x-3z=4 not what I said earlier.

    Now, you multiply the second equation by 2 and then add equation 1 and 2.

    Now multiply second equation by 2 and then add second and third equation and let us see what you get.

    K I get it now :) It's A cause you get 12x-9z=3. Was just a little confused about it.

    tyvm @waterineyes @ParthKohli I understand it perfectly now :) At least doing this by elimination method I mean.

    You are doing this by elimination only @Loujoelou
