A literal equation is an equation where variables represent known values. Literal equations allow us to represent things such as distance, time and interest as variables in the equation.. Using variables instead of words is a 'time saver'. For example d=rt. Meaning distance = rate and time

What is the classification of a system of equations?

The answer will depend on what kinds of equations: there are linear equations, polynomials of various orders, algebraic equations, trigonometric equations, exponential ones and logarithmic ones. There are single equations, systems of linear equations, systems of linear and non-linear equations. There are also differential equations which are classified by order and by degree. There are also partial differential equations.

What are equivalant equations?

Equivalent equations are equations that have the same solution set.
