im not sure what they call the method in your material, it was called "elimination" when i took the class many moons ago .. study up on it and tell me what you get from it

its A by -3 because you are subtracting the 2x and the 3z; which equals 1 i think

The key to learning, and studying, is to allow the asker to put some thought and research into the problem. And not by just doing all the work and thinking for them. This is why we do not allow for direct answers, and requires the askers participation in the solution process. We are not an answering service.

multiplying eqution A by -3, would eliminate (hence the name elimination method) the x variables when added (hence the name addition method), we want to eliminate the z

what do you understand from your course material, as to this elimination method? This question is simply asking you to apply a part of it. If you have some thought about it (right or wrong) we can correct if need be.
