Okay, there are a number of ways to do this problem. But you say you are a beginner so what method(s) have you covered?

Hello, Cloud!

I'll walk through the first one.
I will assume you know the Elimination Method.

Quote:
 $(A)\;\begin{Bmatrix}2x-y+2z&=&2 &  \\ x+10y-3z&=&5 &  \\ \text{-}x+y+z&=&\text{-}3 &  \end{Bmatrix}$

$\begin{array}{ccccc}\text{Given :} & 2x - y + 2z &=& 2 \\ 2\times \!: & \text{-}2x + 2y + 2z &=& \text{-}6 \\ \hline\end{array}$
$\qquad\text{Add: }\qquad\qquad\; y + 4z \;\;\;=\;\;\;\text{-}4\;\;$

$\begin{array}{cccc}\text{Given :} & x+10y - 3z &=&5 \\ \text{Given :} &\text{-}x\,+\,y\,+\,z &=& \text{-}3 \\ \hline\end{array}$
$\qquad\text{Add: }\qquad\quad 11y - 2z \;\;=\;\;\;\;2\;\;$

$\begin{array}{cccc}\text{Given :} & y + 4z &=& \text{-}4 \\ 2\times \!: & 22y - 4z &=& 4 \\ \hline \end{array}$
$\qquad\text{Add: }\qquad\quad\;\; 23y \;\;=\;\;\;0 \quad\Rightarrow\quad y \:=\:0$

Substitute into : $\:11(0) - 2z \:=\:2 \quad\Rightarrow\quad z \:=\:\text{-}1$

Substitute into : $\:x + 10(0) - 3(\text{-}1) \:=\:5 \quad\Rightarrow\quad x \:=\:2$

Therefore: $\:\begin{Bmatrix}x &=& 2 \\ y &=& 0 \\ z&=&\text{-}1 \end{Bmatrix}$
