Example 1 Solve this system of equations using elimination. All the equations are already in the required form. Choose a variable to eliminate, say  x , and select two equations with which to eliminate it, say  equations (1) and (2).  Select a different set of two equations, say equations (2) and (3), and eliminate the same variable. Solve the system created by equations (4) and (5).
