Can someone please help me with this. I'm beyond desperate at this point.
Use the elimination method to solve the following system of equations.2x  y + z = 32x + 2y + 3z = 23x  3y  z = 4

\[2x  y + z = 32x + 2y + 3z = 23x  3y  z = 4\] gives this system of equations\[2xy+z=4\]\[32x+2y+3z=4\]\[23x3yz=4\]

the original post shows them all =4, but it might have been a copy and pasting error. But what is written IS what I just showed.

i am assuming it was a typo and will just leave though. but for future warning. What the OP posted implied that they were all equal to 4. Copying and pasting this into wolfram alpha also outputs the answer that I got when I made this assumption!

can you post a screen shot of what the question looks like? you are either getting bad questions, or are messing them up when posting them here. The answer to what you posted, is x=8/27 y=104/27 and 20/27. That IS the ONLY correct answer to the question. Math is not based on interpretation. What you have us DOES have those answers. So it is either you or your homework that is messing up somewhere. A screenshot is needed to determine this.

@richyw That's part of the problem. That is how I am receiving the questions. The big part of not being able to solve these solutions is not knowing how they are set up from the start.

@InsanelyChaotic Copying and pasting is NOT screen capturing. We need to see if the error is occurring BEFORE or AFTER you copy and paste it to open study. I am not trying to be rude, I am trying to help you get quality answers.

ok on your screen does it look like this \[2x  y + z = 32x + 2y + 3z = 23x  3y  z = 4 \]or this...\[2x  y + z = 32\;\; x + 2y + 3z = 23\:\:x  3y  z = 4\]

richywBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
ok then there is no deciphering to be done. These ARE all equal to 4 in the way you are solving the problem. There is obviously a technological issue you are having! You will need to figure these out before we can help you on open study! It's simple as that. If you show your math teacher the issue they will understand why it is a problem.
