If I had a linear system of algebraic equations, then I can relate the number of unknowns to the number of equations to determine if a solution exists. However, does this criteria carry over to nonlinear equations?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For example, I have a set of m>2 non linear equations and I have 2 unknowns. In general, is it possible to get a solution to this or even just show a solution exists? (I know if they were linear then no solution exists, but not sure with nonlinear eqns)
