  1. Use the algebraic strategies you have developed to solve the system of equations below. Be sure to check your solution. Homework Help ✎

  2. 2x + y – 3z = –12
    5xy + z = 11
    x + 3y – 2z = –13

Choose a pair of equations that can be added together to eliminate a variable.

Choose a different pair of equations to add together to eliminate the same variable.
In this case, you will have to multiply each equation by a constant.

Solve the system of equations you created in steps 1 and 2 for either x or z.

Solve for x using the two-variable equation you created in either step 1 or step 2.
Then substitute the values for x and z into one of the original equations to solve for y.

Check your solution in a different equation than the one you used to solve for y.
