already exists.

Would you like to merge this question into it?

already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

exists and is an alternate of .

Linear equations have a variable only to the first degree(something to the power of 1).
For example: 2x + 1 = 5 , 4y - 95 = 3y are linear equations.

Non-linear equation have a variable that has a second degree or greater.
For example: x2 + 3 = 19, 3x3 - 10 = 14 are non-linear equations.
