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) = - - = - + -
