Answer:

#P={(2,0,-5)}#

Explanation:

#([2,5,-2,|,14],[5,-6,2,|,0],[4,-1,3,|,-7])~~([10,25,-10,|,70],[10,-12,4,|,0],[0,-11,7,|,-35])#
#R_3=R_3-2xxR_1#
#R_2=R_2xx2#
#R_1=R_1xx5#
#R_2=R_2-R_1#

Answer:

#x=2#, #y=0# and #z=-5#

Explanation:

From third equation, #y=4x+3z+7#

Hence,

#2x+5*(4x+3z+7)-2z=14# or #22x+13z=-21# #(1)# and,

#5x-6*(4x+3z+7)+2z=0# or #-19x-16z=42# #(2)#

From #(1)#, #z=(-22x-21)/13#

Consequently,

#-19x-16*(-22x-21)/13=42#

#(352x+336)/13-19x=42#

#(352x+336)/13=19x+42#

#352x+336=13*(19x+42)#

#352x+336=247x+546#

#105x=210#, so #x=2#

Thus,

#z=((-22)*2-21)/13=-5# and,

#y=4*2+3*(-5)+7=0#
