3x + y + 2z  = 6    (1)

x + y +  4z = 3      (2)

2x + 3y + 2z = 2    (3)

 

Manuel....we can use the first two equations....write them as

 

y = -3x - 2z + 6

y = - x - 4z + 3          subtract the first equation from the second

 

0  =  2x  - 2z - 3

2x  = 2z + 3        (4)

 

Multiply the second equation by 2

2x + 2y + 8z  = 6      (5)

 

Put   (4)   into  (3)  and (5)  for 2x

 

 (2z + 3) + 3y + 2z   = 2   ⇒     3y + 4z  = -1     (6)

(2z + 3) + 2y + 8z  =  6  ⇒       2y  + 10z =  3  (7)

 

Multiply   (6)  by 2  and (7)  by -3

 

6y + 8z =  -2

-6y - 30z  = -9        add these

 

-22z  =  - 11       divide both sides by -22

z  = 1/2

 

Using (4)     2x   =  2z + 3    

2x  = 2(1/2) + 3

2x  = 4

x  = 2

 

And using (7)     2y + 10z  = 3

2y + 10 (1/2)  = 3

2y  + 5  = 3

2y  = -2

y = -1 

 

So    .... { x, y, z }   =  { 1/2, -1, 2 }

 

 

cool cool cool
