**5.2 Systems of Linear Equations in Three Variables**

2
**Example: Solve x + 2y + z = 4 4y – 3z = 1 5z = 5**

This system is in Triangular Form (its equations follow a stair-step pattern). Example: Solve x + 2y + z = y – 3z = z = 5 Solve for one of the variables, somewhere 5z = z = 1 Now substitute into the other equations x + 2y = y – 3(1) = 1

3
**Solve the 2nd equation for y**

4y = 4 y = 1 Now, solve the 1st equation for x x + 2(1) + 1 = 4 x = x = 1 (1, 1, 1)

4
**Example: Solve: x + y + z = 0 2x + 2y – 3z = 5 x – 4y – 3z = –11**

This system is not in triangular form. Use elimination to get it in triangular form, or linear combinations to produce a system of 2 equations in 2 variables... Example: Solve: x + y + z = x + 2y – 3z = x – 4y – 3z = –11 We will use linear combinations in the 1st and 2nd equations to eliminate the z terms : 3 (x + y + z = 0) x + 3y + 3z = 0 2x + 2y – 3z = x + 2y – 3z = x + 5y = 5

5
**We will do the same for the 2nd and 3rd equations:**

2x + 2y – 3z = x + 2y – 3z = 5 –1(x – 4y – 3z = –11) –x + 4y + 3z = 11 x + 6y = 16 We now have now produced a system of 2 equations in 2 variables… 5x + 5y = 5 x + 6y = 16

6
x + 6y = x + 5y = 5 –5x – 30y = – x y = 5 –25y = –75 y = 3

7
Now, find x: x + 6(3) = x = 16 x = –2 Finally, go back to one of the original equations to find z: x + y + z = 0 – z = 0 1 + z = 0 z = –1 (–2, 3, –1)
