Example 2 Solve this system of equations using the elimination method. Write all equations in standard form. Notice that equation (1) already has the  y  eliminated. Therefore, use equations (2) and (3) to  eliminate  y . Then use this result, together with equation (1), to solve for  x  and  z . Use these results
