Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It is known that a system of linear equations is considered overdetermined if there are more equations than unknowns...

My question simply stated:is there a term to describe a system of linear equations if there are more equations than unknowns?

Google seems to struggle when my search query is

"A system of equations with more unknowns than equations" !

Ive recently encountered such a system and was curious to do more research into developing or looking into efficient algorithms for solving them---since my current method of solving them is a bit tedious.

Thanks for any information.
