system of linear equations

Linear System of Equations

A system of equations in which each equation is linear.

For any linear system, exactly one of the following will be true: There is only one solution, there are infinitely many solutions (consistent), or there are no solutions (inconsistent). A linear system with more equations than variables is called overdetermined, and a linear system with more variables than equations is called underdetermined.
