create a set of equations from lists, arrays and tables
expression or a list, vector or matrix of expressions or equations
(optional) expression or a list, vector or matrix of expressions or equations to be compared with A

This procedure is used to construct a set of equations by comparing the components of compound objects such as a lists, vectors or matrices of expressions.
If A and B are both lists with the same number of elements then the resulting equations are A1=B1,tripledotplaceholderAn=Bn
Vectors and matrices are converted to lists prior to constructing the set of equations.
If the second argument B consists of a single algebraic expression or a list with a single element then the corresponding list is extended by repetition to the length required for a proper comparison with A.
If there is no second argument B it defaults to the value 0.
If the first argument A includes equations, the second argument is used only to convert the non-equation components of A into equations. In this case B must be a list of length 1.
The command with(student,equate) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
