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.

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

How does solving linear inequalities differ from solving linear equations?

Linear inequalities are equations, but instead of an equal sign, it has either a greater than, greater than or equal to, less than, or a less than or equal to sign. Both can b

What makes linear equations different than linear inequalities?

An equation is a statement that two quantities are equal, or the same, identical, in value. It is expressed by putting an equal sign (=) between the two quantities. An inequal

What is the difference between a linear function and a quadratic equation?

A linear equation describes a line like 2x+1=y. If you were to graph that equation, then it would give you a line. A quadratic equation is like x^2+2x+1=y. Graphing this equat

Whats Difference between linear equation to linear function?

A linear equation contains only the first power of the unknown quantity. Thus, 5x - 3 = 7 and x/6 = 4 are both linear equations. Linear equations have only one solution which

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

What are the different kinds of systems of linear equations?

Standard form: Ax + By = C, where A and B are non-zero constants. Slope-intercept form: y = mx + b, where m is the slope, and b is the y-intercept.

Differences between linear and non linear?

If you graph a Linear equation it will be a strait line. If it doesn't come out strait, its not linear. Also a linear equation can be put into y=mx+b, with mx meaning the slop

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.
In Science

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
In Algebra

What is the difference of Linear Equation?

Difference in math means to subtract. To subtract two equations  match up the variable and do subtraction. This is a method of  solving systems of equations.   Example:
