Solve by any method:

4x-y+z=-5

2x+2y+3z=10

5x-2y+6z=1

I tried using the method of Gaussian Elimination but I got kinda messed up, I'd appreciate some help. Thanks!

Can't seem to insert a newline inside the <pre> </pre>  tags.

And now I can't even edit my first response.

Anyway, here's a screenshot of my answer taken from the preview:

7x + 9z = 11

Multiply 1st by 2  and add to 2nd

10x +5z=0          mutiply red by -10/7 and add to green

-10/7 (9z)+5z = -10/7 (11)    solve for z

z = 2

Plug z value into 2nd equation      and     3rd equation

2x - 2y = 4                                                 5x -2y = -11         add these two equations

7x = - 7

x = - 1

Now sub in the values of z and x into any of the equations to compute z

2(- 1) + 2y +3(2) = 10

y = 3
