Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its A by 3 because you are subtracting the 2x and the 3z; which equals 1 i think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0multiplying 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what 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.
