Solution to a System
I was wondering if anyone could verify my answer to the following:
Determine if the given values are a solution of this system:
(4,0, 3)
4xy+2z= 10
8x+2y+z= 35
x2y+6z= 22
I got x=4, y=0 and z=3
So yes, the given values are a solution of this system.
Is this correct?

Yes. Why are you "not sure"?
Did you notice this quick way to get z? (NOT important, really...more luck!)
4xy+2z= 10 [1]
8x +2y + z= 35 [2]
8x 2y + 4z = 20 [1]*2

I wasn't sure if the value of my variables were placed properly, when I did them in the order listed above, the equations came out true. I was just double checking. Each of my questions are worth 10 points and I really can't afford to miss any if possible. I guess I was more so second guessing myself?
