Explain the difference between solving a linear equation graphically and solving a system of equations graphically.

How would I go about doing this?

when you solve a linear equation you mean find y for a given x, or find x for a given y, just one point if the lines are not parallel or the same.

when you solve a system, you find the points where the lines cross.
