Who is bigger?

Who is bigger -> the all of the possible equations set or all the possible graphs set in cartesian X-Y-Z graph?

Define precisely what you mean by an "equation". It can be argued that if two "different" equations have exactly the same graph, then one can be reduced to the other so the are really the "same" equation. To avoid confusion, you have to say exactly what is meant by "different" and "same" equation.

rI mean:
All the equation that exist (until the maximum that possible)
All the graphs you can draw and possible
equation = variables with operations.
I don't find a definition that precisely example of what or what not is equation?
Can you define the mathematical term of equation and from this point to go further to answer my question?

My point was to get you to tell us what you mean by "equation" and what you would consider as two different equations when counting them. For example, the "equation" x +y= 3 and the "equation" 2x+ 2y= 6 have exactly the same graph, the straight line determined by (3, 0) and (0, 3). When counting equations would you consider those two different equations or just variations of the same equation? If you consider them two different equations, then there are far more "equations" than "graphs" since many different equations that give the same graph. If you consider "x+ y= 3" and "2x+ 2y= 6" the same equation because they are satisfied by the same (x, y) pairs, then their are exactly the same number of equations as graphs because a graph is, simply, a collection of (x, y) pairs.
