HA2 S3.5 System w/ 3 variables

Author: Renee Voltin

3 variables - 3 equations

solve the system using elimination of one variable to create a new system of 2 equations with 2 variables which will be solved using the elimination or substitution method. The solution of the 2-variable system will be used to determine the value of the 3rd and final variable from the 3-variable system.

looking at special cases for 3 equation systems and the physical model of the 3 planes in space.
