1 Warm-up Solve each system. 1) 2) - = + = - 7 2 11 2 y x y x - = - = + - 14 12 2 8 6 y x y x Solving 3 Variable Systems by Elimination Objective: -to solve 3 variable systems by elimination one solution- planes intersect at one common point no solution- no point lies in all three planes. infinite number of solutions planes intersect at all the points along a common line. Solving by Elimination -When solving a system of three equations in three variables you work with the equations in pairs. You will use one of the equations twice . Step 1: Pair the equations and eliminate y, because the y terms are already additive inverses. ADD 1 and 2 (call that 4), then ADD 2 and 3 (call that 5)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
