A system of equations is two or more equations that contain the same variables. A solutions to a system of equations are the point where the lines intersect. There are four methods to solving systems of equations: graphing, substitution, elimination and matrices. Solving systems of equations is an important concept that shows up first in Algebra I, but is built upon in upper-level math.
