question
What type of solutions do the methods for solving systems of equations find and how does this relate to setting the equations equal to each other?
A system of equations is a set of two or more equations that share two or more unknowns. The solutions to a system of equations are the total amounts that make all of the equations true, as well as the locations where the graphs of the equations intersect. You can determine a system of linear equations through graphing, linear combination and substitution. Systems of nonlinear functions, for example, quadratic or exponential equations, can be managed with the equivalent methods.
