In this paper, we investigate two versions of equations which describe the motion of relativistic membranes in the Minkowski space 1+n and prove the equivalence between them. Moreover, we give another geometric explanation about the equivalence by Noether's second theorem. Applying the same argument, we also give the equivalence between two versions of equations governing the motion of relativistic strings.
