# System of equations

In mathematics, a set of **simultaneous equations**, also known as a **system of equations** or an **equation system**, is a finite set of equations for which common solutions are sought. An equation system is usually classified in the same manner as single equations, namely as a:

- System of linear equations,
- System of nonlinear equations,
- System of bilinear equations,
- System of polynomial equations,
- System of ordinary differential equations,
- System of partial differential equations, or a
- System of difference equations
