Are families of linear equations the same as systems of linear equations?

    I think so, I typed it in wikipedia and it said: "For a family of linear equations, see System of linear equations" Consider the context - are both being used by the same person to refer to different things? I think family of linear equations is just an unusual way to refer to them.

    Yeah I've never heard them called families, but it seems that they might be the same.

    Eh. Apparently, it's not exactly the same. The general distinction is that there are a LOT more equations and they generally form a trend or some sort of pattern...
