The three types are

  • the system has a unique solution
  • the system has no solutions
  • the system has infinitely many solutions.

The three types of linear equations are: Consistent Dependent, Consistent Independent, and Inconsistent.

A system of equations can be solved using subtraction, addition, multiplication, and substitution.

Independence:The equations of a linear system are independent if none of the equations can be derived algebraically from the others. When the equations are independent, each equation contains new information about the variables, and removing any of the equations increases the size of the solution set.Consistency:The equations of a linear system are consistent if they possess a common solution, and inconsistent otherwise. When the equations are inconsistent, it is possible to derive a contradiction from the equations, such as the statement that 0 = 1.Homogeneous:If the linear equations in a given system have a value of zero for all of their constant terms, the system is homogeneous.If one or more of the system's constant terms aren't zero, then the system is nonhomogeneous.

There is only one type of solution if there are two linear equations. and that is the point of intersection listed in (x,y) form.

Algebraic equations, trigenometric equations, linear equations, geometric equations, partial differential equations, differential equations, integrals to name a few.

If you refer to linear equations, graphed as straight lines, two inconsistent equations would result in two parallel lines.

There are many types of equations such as straight line equations, simultaneous equations and quadratic equations.

Generally, both types of equation contain an equals sign and some combination of numbers and/or variables. That is the only thing I can think of that is common between all types of nonlinear and linear equations.

If the equations are linear, they may have no common solutions, one common solutions, or infinitely many solutions. Graphically, in the simplest case you have two straight lines; these can be parallel, intersect in a same point, or actually be the same line. If the equations are non-linear, they may have any amount of solutions. For example, two different intersecting ellipses may intersect in up to four points.

Linear equations or inequalities describe points x y that lie on a circle.

The three types of settlement patterns are: scattered, linear, and clustered. Scattered means that the houses are scattered, linear means that they are beside roads, and clustered means their clustered. :)

All the lines meet at one point: a single solution. All the lines are the same: infinitely many solutions. At least one of the lines does not pass through the point of intersection of the others: no solution.

There are various processes:Trial and error. It can sometimes work. Not recommended, but it can work sometimes, particularly if there are external factors that suggest values for some of the variables.Plotting the lines represented by the equations to find their point(s) of intersection. Good for two variables, just about feasible with three but not sensible for more variables.Substitution involves using one equation to express one of the variables in terms of the others. The next step is to substitute for that variable in the remaining equations. Repeat the process and, step-by-step, reduce the number of variables and equations to one. Solve that equation and then work back. Elimination is an equivalent method and uses linear combinations of the equations to eliminate one variable at a time from the system of equations so as to arrive at a single equation in one variable. Suppose the system of n equations in n variables is represented in matrix form by Ax = y where A is the nxn matrix of coefficients of the equations, and x is an m*1 column vector of variables and y is a m*1 vector of constants. Then the solution (if it exists) is A-1y, where A-1 is the inverse matrix of A.
