# Set of linear equations and simultaneous linear equations

Hello!
Quick and silly question; my apologies, but it shouldn't take to long to answer!
Is a set of x linear equations the same as x simultaneous linear equations?
I'm pretty sure they are, but are there any nuances I'm overlooking? Is there any thing that can be considered one but not the other?
Many thanks,
Nobahar.

Only thing I could think of is if they had different variables.

Ah! Thanks JonF.

This depends on the rule for the set. The set of equations which belongs to a system would be a collection of simultaneous equations. If this is the case under consideration, then the answer is Yes. This assumes that the x number of variables are relevant to this set of equations to describe the system.

The best that I can understand what you are asking is that, Yes! More advanced forum members can more fully examine the finer details.
