Result

You entered the following system of equations:


130 x + 120 y + 110 z = 372500
x + y + z = 3000
3x 5y 5z = 600
The solutions are:
x = 1800 , y = 650 , z = 550

Explanation

Step 1: Swap Row 1 and Row 2 .After this step we have:


x + y + z = 3000
130 x + 120 y + 110 z = 372500
3x 5y 5z = 600
Step 2: Multiply first equation by 130 and add the result to the second equation. The
result is:
x + y + z = 3000
10 y 20 z = 17500
3x 5y 5z = 600
Step 3: Multiply first equation by 3 and add the result to the third equation. The result is:
x + y + z = 3000
10 y 20 z = 17500
8y 8z = 9600
Step 4: Swap Row 2 and Row 3 .After this step we have:
x + y + z = 3000
8y 8z = 9600
10 y 20 z = 17500
Step 5: Multiply second equation by 45 and add the result to the third equation. The result
is:
x + y + z = 3000
8y 8z = 9600
10 z = 5500

Step 6: solve for z.


10 z = 5500
z = 550
Step 7: solve for y.
8y 8z = 9600
8y 8 550 = 9600
y = 650
Step 8: solve for x by substituting y = 650 and z = 550 into the first equation.
