You need to reduce the system to triangular form, hence, you should, eliminate x from the first and second equation such that:

-5x - 45y - 80z + 5x + 8y + z = 0 + 35

-37y - 79z = 35

You need to eliminate x from the first and the third equation such that:

x + 9y + 8z - x - 4y - z= 0-17

5y + 7z = -17

You need to use the equation -37y -...
