    Wink Help me please

    I have three problems I am stuck on and can't figure them out.
    The first deals with functions and the book comes up with the answer of 1 but I think i am losing my hair now trying to get that.

    f(3)+g(3)

    the next one is solving the variables by using the addition method
    3x-4y+4z=7
    x-y-2z=2
    2x-3y+6z=5

    the next is using cramer's rule

    3x=7y+1
    2x=3y-1

    You need to specify which functions you have.

    Rewrite as,
    \left\{ \begin{array}{c}3x-7y=1\\2x-3y=-1
    Then the determinant is,
    D=<br />
\left| \begin{array}{cc} 3&-7\\ 2&-3 \end{array}\right|<br />
= -9+14=5
    With,
    D_x=<br />
\left| \begin{array}{cc}<br />
1&-7\\<br />
-1&-3<br />
\end{array} \right|= -3-7=-10.

    And,
    D_y=<br />
\left| \begin{array}{cc}<br />
3&1\\<br />
2&-1<br />
\end{array} \right|= -3-2=-5.

    Thus, you have
    x=\frac{D_x}{D}=\frac{-10}{5}=-2
    y=\frac{D_y}{D}=\frac{-5}{5}=-1
