Holt McDougal Algebra Solving Linear Systems in Three Variables Systems of three equations with three variables are often called 3-by-3 systems. In general, to find a single solution to any system of equations, you need as many equations as you have variables.

5
Holt McDougal Algebra Solving Linear Systems in Three Variables Recall from Lesson 3-5 that the graph of a linear equation in three variables is a plane. When you graph a system of three linear equations in three dimensions, the result is three planes that may or may not intersect. The solution to the system is the set of points where all three planes intersect. These systems may have one, infinitely many, or no solution.

Holt McDougal Algebra Solving Linear Systems in Three Variables Identifying the exact solution from a graph of a 3-by-3 system can be very difficult. However, you can use the methods of elimination and substitution to reduce a 3-by-3 system to a 2-by-2 system and then use the methods that you learned in Lesson 3-2.
