2.

 ___ ___ ____ ________________________________ ___ ___ ____ 
x+3y-z=6multiply through by  2  to get2x+6y-2z=12
4x-2y+2z=-10multiply through by  3  to get12x-6y+6z=-30
6x  +z=-12multiply through by -4  to get-24x  -4z=48

 

Add these three equations together to get

 

-10x   =   30             Divide both sides by  -10 .

 

x   =   -3

 

Use this value for  x  in the third given equation to find  z .

 

6(-3)  +  z   =   -12             Subtract  6(-3)  from both sides.

 

z   =   -12 - 6(-3)   =   -12 + 18   =   6

 

Now we can find  y  using the first given equation.

 

-3  +  3y  -  6   =   6

3y   =   15

y   =   5

 

So    x  =  -3 ,    y  =  5 ,    and    z  =  6         smiley
