    I wouldn't be the best person to give you advice on that, and I don't want to give you the wrong answer. Good luck finding help though. Also, what I forgot to write in my first response: Must have two or less variables and none of the variables can be raised to a power. Good luck!

    A differential equation is linear if, for any two solutions u1 and u2, c1 u1 + c2 u2 is also a solution.

    is u1 p(x) and u2 q(x) in y'+P(x)y = Q(x)?
