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.

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?

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.
