Hi guys this is Dilshad again, algebra is getting tough day by day and I really don't know what's going on, we are learning to solve system of 3 linear equations. example, 8x5y+z=15 3x+yz=7 x+4y+z=3 and even these kind, xy =5 2yz=1 3x+3+z=6 Is there a easy way to solve these? since I always end up with wrong answer. There must be a quick and easy way to do this, since I'm doing this for weeks for 9 hours straight and I still don't get please help Dilshad.

Google is your friend. If you look for [solve three equations] you will come up with many sites such as this: http://www.sosmath.com/soe/SE3001/SE3001.html

If you take anough care to avoid careless slips, you should be able to use the elimination of variables method of solution to obtain correct answers.

xy =5  (1) 2yz=1  (2) 3x+3+z=6 (3) (if the question you typed is correct) From (1), x = 5+y  (4) Sub. (4) into (3) 3 (5+y)+3+z=6 18+3y+z = 6  (5) (2)+(5) 2yz + (18+3y+z) = 1+6 5y+18 = 7 y = 11/5 Sub. y = 11/5 into (1) , find x Sub. y = 11/5 into (2), find z Hope that it helps. By the way, honestly, I haven't learned to solve system of 3 linear equations.

Thanks all for the reply, the thing is, it's when I just normally try solving I just stop when I'm moving the variables example making positive 3's into negative 3's moving to the other side, then I stop totally since I don't see how I can go any further. The mind just goes blank at me.
