Remember when solving a system of equations, you can either work using substitution or elimination. When dealing with a 3 variable, 3 equation system, generally you want to eliminate a variable from two equations, then eliminate the same variable from another set of two equations. From there solve for one of the two variables in the newly formed system of 2 equations with two variables. From here you can do back substitution to find the values of the other variables. Be sure to check all answers with each equation to make sure they satisfy each.
