No, simultaneous equations are two or more equations that have all to be true at the same time (simultaneously) for the solution.

An equation with more than one variable is a multivariate equaion.

Area = 0.5*Length*Height or a = 0.5*l*h for the area of a triangle has more than one variables, but it is certainly not simultaneous.
An equation with a variable is called a single variable equation. An equation that has more than one variable is called as a multi-variable equation. A polynomial equation has one variable in different powers: a common example is quadratic equations.
