{-2x + 2y + 3z = 0

{-2x - y + z = -3

{2x + 3y + 3z = 5

first add the first and third equation

-2x + 2y + 3z = 0   +

2x + 3y + 3z = 5

so, 0 + 5 y + 6z =5.................(1)

now add the second and third equation

-2x - y + z = -3

2x + 3y + 3z = 5

so, 0 + 2y +4z = 2........................(2)

0 + 2y +4z = 2  multiply by 3

6y +12y = 6.....................(3)

0 + 5 y + 6z =5.................(1)  multiply by 2

10 y + 12y =10..............(4)

now subtract (3) from (4)

10 y + 12y =10   -

6y +12y = 6

so,  4 y + 0 = 4

4y = 4

y =1

now substitute y =1 in  5 y + 6z =5.................(1)

5*1 + 6z =5

6z =5-5

z = 0

-2x + 2y + 3z = 0

substitue value of y=1 and z=0

-2x + 2*1 + 3*0 = 0

-2x    =  -2

x =1

x =1

y =1

z = 0

hope you understood..please message if you have any doubts...thank you
