One equation, three unknowns.
You can solve this equation as long as you pick values for any two of the unknowns.

Determinant systems
You could either convert it into a matrix equation and solve it.
Or you can use one equation to modify the other two, and then solve those two simultaneously. For example if you take the last equation and substitute it into the first 2, then solve the now modified first two you will get two of the solutions.

3x+y+2z=4 (1) 2x+3yz=4 (2) 2xyz=0 (3) If you take equation 2 and subtract that from equation 3, what equation are you left with? Similarly, if you take equation 1 and add that to 2*equation 3, what equation are you left with?
