Solving for 3 variables questions :o help! Solve the system by elimination 1: x+5y-4z=-10, 2x-y+5z=-9, 2x-10y-5z=0 . 2. Solve the system by substitution: 2x-y+z=-4, z=5, -2x+3y-z=-10. 3. A food store makes a 11–pound mixture of peanuts, almonds, and raisins. The cost of peanuts is $1.50 per pound, almonds cost $3.00 per pound, and raisins cost $1.50 per pound. The mixture calls for twice as many peanuts as almonds. The total cost of the mixture is $21.00. How much of each ingredient did the store use?
