Hi, the third equation must be y = 2x

Multiply the first equation by 25: 

1000 = 25x + 25y + 25z

Use the second equation subtract the previous one,

 670 = 10y + 25z

Substitute y = 2x into the first equation

40 = 3x +z

  z = 40 - 3x

Substitute again.

670 = 10y + 1000 - 75x

670 = 20x + 1000 - 75x

-330 = -55x

      x = 6

      y =2*6=12

      z = 40-3(6)=22
