What does "linear" in linear algebra and "abstract" in abstract algebra stands for ?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Since I am learning linear algebra, I can guess why linear algebra is called so. In linear algebra, the introductory stuff is all related to solving systems of linear equations of form ##A\bf{X} = \bf{Y}##.

I don't have any idea about abstract algebra.
