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.
