Solve the system of equations 3y + 2z = 12 and y – z = 9. A. y = 6, z = 15 B. y = –6, z = 15 C. y = 6, z = –3 D. y = 24, z = 15

3y + 2z = 12

y – z = 9



y = z + 9

3(z + 9) + 2z = 12

3z + 27 + 2z = 12

5z + 27 = 12

5z = 12 - 27

5z = -15

z = -15/5

z = -3



y - (-3) = 9

y + 3 = 9

y = 9 - 3

y = 6



Solution set: y = 6, z = -3

Solve the system of equations 2x + 3y = 40 and –2x + 2y = 20. A. x = –10, y = 20 B. x = 10, y = 20 C. x = 2, y = 12 D. x = –6, y = 4

2x + 3y = 40
–2x + 2y = 20

(2x + 3y = 40) + (–2x + 2y = 20)
5y = 60
y = 60/5
y = 12

2x + 3(12) = 40
2x + 36 = 40
2x = 40 - 36
2x = 4
x = 4/2
x = 2

Solution set: x = 2, y = 12
