Best Answer

The solution to a system on linear equations in nunknown variables are ordered n-tuples such that their values satisfy each of the equations in the system. There need not be a solution or there can be more than one solutions.

What does it mean for a ordered pair to be a solution to a linear equation?

An ordered pair is a solution only of a linear equation in two variables - not any linear equation. Often the variables are denoted by x and y. If the first of the ordered pair is substituted for x in the equation, and the second for y, then the equation represents a true statement.

How can you tell that an equation has the same solution as the original equation?

If the two equations are linear transformations of one another they have the same solution.
