More generally, the solutions of a linear equation in .
Linear equations occur frequently in all mathematics and their applications in physics and engineering, partly because non-linear systems are often well approximated by linear equations.
For an equation to be meaningful, the coefficient of at least one variable must be non-zero.
As one of the tools of mathematics, linear systems have multiple uses in the real world.
This article considers the case of a single equation with coefficients from the field of real numbers, for which one studies the real solutions.
All of its content applies to complex solutions and, more generally, for linear equations with coefficients and solutions in any field.
This form is not symmetric in the two given points, but a symmetric form can be obtained by regrouping the constant terms: (exchanging the two points changes the sign of the left-hand side of the equation).
The two-point form of the equation of a line can be expressed simply in terms of a determinant. The equation -tuples such that substituting each element of the tuple for the corresponding variable transforms the equation into a true equality.
