Graphing Solution to Gaussian Elimination

The system of equations is:

x+y+z=3
3x+3y+7z=0
x+3y-2z=17

My solution showed
x=1
y=4
z=-2

how do I go about putting this on a graph?

The system of equations represents the intersection of three planes. The three planes intersect at the point (x,y,z) = (1,4,-2). To graph this, you should attempt to graph the three individual planes and show that they intersect at the point you calculated. 3-d rendering is not a strong suit of mine and I don't have a great way to send you drawings. So I will describe the procedure.

First draw the three axes x,y,z. ...
