what is superposition?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

in wikipedia:"In linear algebra, the principle of superposition states that, for a linear system, a linear combination of solutions to the system is also a solution to the same linear system. The superposition principle applies to linear systems of algebraic equations, linear differential equations, or systems of linear differential equations."

can anyone use simpler language to dechiper what it means?
