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.

What is the method of finite differences for linear equations?

Intuitive derivation  Finite-difference methods approximate the solutions to differential equations by replacing derivative expressions with approximately equivalent differen

Is y equals mx plus b a non linear or linear equation?

In most situations, the answer that is looked for is linear. However, since y=mx+b does not follow superposition, it is in fact, nonlinear. Proof: y1=mx1+b y2=mx2+b x3=Ax1+Bx

What is the difference between linear and non linear resistance?

Materials that obey Ohm's Law are called 'linear' or 'ohmic'; those  that don't are called 'non-ohmic' or 'non-linear'.    Ohm's Law isn't by any means a universal law

What is the differences between linear and non linear optical properties?

In the case of linear optical transitions, an electron absorbs a photon from the incoming light and makes a transition to the next higher unoccupied allowed state. When th

What is the difference between linear and non linear scales?

A linear scale is a scale with equal divisions for equal vales, for example a ruler. A non linear scale is where the relationship between the variables is not directly proport

The question and answer are locked and cannot be edited.

What are linear equations?

Linear equations are equations whose only terms are constants and/or single variables raised to the first power. More than one variable is allowed in a linear equation, but it

What are the difference between linear equation and quadratic equation?

  A quadratic equation must be able to be written in the form:   y = ax2 + bx + c where a is not equal to zero. The graph will be a parabola. There must be a "squared"

What is an linear equation?

It is a certain type of equation used in Algebra. It uses letters to replace numbers and the aim of cracking the equation is to find the value of the letter. Such as: 4b+2=26

Why are linear equations called linear equations?

Because, if plotted on a Cartesian plane, all solutions to the equation would lie on a straight line.

Example equations of linear equations?

y=3x+2  y-4x=9  These are examples of linear equations which is a first degree algebraic expression with one, two or more variables equated to a constant.  So x=2 is a lin

What is the difference between linear equations and linear inequalities?

It is easiest to describe the difference in terms of coordinate geometry. A linear equation defines a straight line in the coordinate plane. Every point on the line satisfie

What is the difference between linear and non-linear data structures?

A linear data structure has a single path from the first element to  the last. Thus arrays and lists are linear structures. A non-linear  data structure has one or more "bra
