An equation is a relation which states that two expressions are equal, identical, or otherwise the same. Equations are easily identifiable because they are composed of two expressions with an equals sign ('=') between them.

Equations are similar to congruences (which relate geometric figures instead of numbers) and other relationships which fall into the category of equivalence relations.
