    Help solving the following system of equations by using the inverse of the coef

    I don't get this at all please help

    7x - y + 7z = -10
    8y+7z = 17
    -7x+4y+6z = 6


    I know i have to set something up like [a]^-1 [b] in the Ti but i am just having a ton of confusion here...

    Yes, you need to set up \displaystyle \begin{align*} \left[ \begin{matrix} \phantom{-}7 & -1 & 7 \\ \phantom{-}0 & \phantom{-}8 & 7 \\ -7 & \phantom{-}4 &6 \end{matrix} \right]^{-1} \left[ \begin{matrix} -10 \\ \phantom{-}17 \\ \phantom{-}6 \end{matrix} \right] \end{align*}
