Lesson Description:

This video shows how to solve a system of 3 three linear equations in 3 variables using the substitution method, and also partly the addition (elimination) method to solve a system of 2 equations. The same problem is solved in the first part of this lesson series using the Addition Method.

    This lesson does a great job of showing how to solve a system of 3 equations in 3 variables using the substitution method. This same problem was done in the previous lesson in this series using the elimination / addition method. The elimination method is actually used deep into this problem in 1 step because it is easier. Each step involved in this sometimes difficult process is shown. This is a great place to start to learn how to solve a system of 3 equations.
