Values of x and y which satisfy the linear equation are called solutions of linear equation.

 

Let us take linear equation

x + y = 5

 

We find 4 different solutions of the linear equation

So four solutions of the given equation are:

(0, 5), (5, 0) ,  (1, 4) and (4, 1).

 

Similarly, we can get many solutions

For a linear equation, there are infinitely many solutions.
