    you'll be able to find Y in terms of W and Z to get 3X in 2nd equation, you multiply W+Z=X+Y by 3 so that you can replace '3X' by '2W' (from first equation.) what u get ?

    thats what i am saying, you won't be able to find it ONLY in terms of W , it seems impossible to me..... unless more equations are given.....

    @hartnn If we make more equations it is quite possible to eliminate.
