 Question 24895: Hi, What are the steps to solve a system of linear equation by using the elimination method? I only know how to use the substitution method. Ex. This one is an example from the text book but I can't really understand. Please help, 3x - 4y = 1 2x + 3y = 12 Click here to see answer by elima(1433)

 Question 25003: Instructions were to "Solve the system of linear equations" (There is a bracket( { ) on one side of all three equations) -x + y + 2z = 1 2x + 3y + z = -2 5x + 4y + 2z = 4 I have read the section explaining this and am still unsure how to start. The other systems that include only two equations were not hard. Click here to see answer by AnlytcPhil(1278)

 Question 25093: We are solving for f. The equation is 1/p + 1/q = 1/f if pg is common deminator then we would multiply each side by pg so q+p=1/f x pg. So would I then divide each side by pg so I would get q+p/pq=1/f. The answer in the book is f=pq/p+q which is the opposite of what I got. Thanks for your help.
