### Solve this equation given below x-2y+z= -9 2y+3z= 16 4y=8

• A.

𝑥 = 9, 𝑦 = 2, 𝑧 = - 4

• B.

𝑥 = −9, 𝑦 = -2, 𝑧 = 4

• C.

𝑥 = −9, 𝑦 = 2, 𝑧 = 4

• D.

𝑥 = −9, 𝑦 = - 2, 𝑧 = - 4

C. 𝑥 = −9, 𝑦 = 2, 𝑧 = 4
Explanation
The given system of equations can be solved using the method of substitution. From the third equation, we can solve for y: y = 2. Substituting this value of y into the second equation, we can solve for z: 2(2) + 3z = 16, which gives z = 4. Substituting the values of y = 2 and z = 4 into the first equation, we can solve for x: x - 2(2) + 4 = -9, which gives x = -9. Therefore, the correct answer is 𝑥 = -9, 𝑦 = 2, 𝑧 = 4.

• A.

𝑥 = -3, 𝑦 = −4, 𝑧 = 0

• B.

𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = 4, 𝑧 = 0

• C.

𝑥 = 2, 𝑦 = −4, 𝑧 = 0

• D.

𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = −4, 𝑧 = 0

D. 𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = −4, 𝑧 = 0
Explanation
The given set of equations can be solved using substitution or elimination method. By substituting the value of x from the third equation into the second equation, we get y = -4. Substituting the values of x and y into the first equation, we get z = 0. Therefore, the solution to the equation is x = 3, y = -4, and z = 0.

### Solve this equation? 2x+4y-z= -3 y+z= 4 2y=-2

• A.

𝑥 = -3, 𝑦 = −1, 𝑧 = -5

• B.

𝑥 = -3, 𝑦 = −1, 𝑧 = 5

• C.

𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = −1, 𝑧 = 5

• D.

𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = −1, 𝑧 = -5

C. 𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = −1, 𝑧 = 5
Explanation
The given system of equations can be solved by substitution or elimination method. By substituting the value of y from the second equation into the first equation, we get 2x + 4(4 - z) - z = -3. Simplifying this equation gives 2x - 3z = -19. By substituting the value of y from the third equation into the second equation, we get -2 + z = 4, which gives z = 6. Substituting the value of z into the first equation, we get 2x + 4(4 - 6) - 6 = -3, which simplifies to 2x - 14 = -3. Solving this equation gives x = 3. Therefore, the correct answer is 𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = -1, 𝑧 = 5.

### Solve this equation given below x+y=4 2x+3y=9

• A.

𝑥 = -3, 𝑦 = -1

• B.

𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = -1

• C.

𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = 1

• D.

𝑥 = -3, 𝑦 = 1

C. 𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = 1
Explanation
The correct answer is 𝑥 = 3, 𝑦 = 1 because when we substitute these values into the given equations, we get a true statement. When we substitute 𝑥 = 3 and 𝑦 = 1 into the first equation, we get 3 + 1 = 4, which is true. When we substitute 𝑥 = 3 and 𝑦 = 1 into the second equation, we get 2(3) + 3(1) = 9, which is also true. Therefore, 𝑥 = 3 and 𝑦 = 1 satisfy both equations and are the correct solution to the given system of equations.

• C.

𝑥 = 8, 𝑦 = 6

• D.

𝑥 = -8, 𝑦 = 6

C. 𝑥 = 8, 𝑦 = 6
Explanation
The correct answer is 𝑥 = 8, 𝑦 = 6. This is the correct answer because when we substitute these values into the given equations, we get 3(8) - 4(6) = 0 and 3(8) + 2(6) = 36, which satisfies both equations.

### Solve this equation given below 2x+3y =-4 3x- y = 5

• A.

𝑥 = -1, 𝑦 = 2

• B.

𝑥 = 1, 𝑦 = 2

• C.

𝑥 = 1, 𝑦 = −2

• D.

𝑥 = -1, 𝑦 = −2

C. 𝑥 = 1, 𝑦 = −2
Explanation
The correct answer is 𝑥 = 1, 𝑦 = -2. This can be determined by solving the given system of equations using the method of substitution or elimination. By substituting the value of 𝑥 = 1 into the second equation, we get 3(1) - 𝑦 = 5, which simplifies to -𝑦 = 2. Solving for 𝑦, we find 𝑦 = -2. Substituting this value of 𝑦 back into the first equation, we get 2(1) + 3(-2) = -4, which simplifies to -4 = -4. Therefore, the solution to the system of equations is 𝑥 = 1, 𝑦 = -2.
