Work Step by Step

While there are different ways of solving a system in three variables, we can usually eliminate one variable (say $z$) by substitution and reduce the system to two variables. Repeat the elimination process to find the value of one variable (say $x$) and then use back-substitution to find the values of the other two variables.
