    check whether \(L(u+v) = L(u) + L(v) \) and \(L(cu) = c L(u) \) L is operator... if the equation satisfy both of these, then it's linear..

    if the highest power of a derivative is 1, its linear. y' = y+2 is linear (y')^3 = y+2 ..... is not linear

    the largest number of ''''s defines order the power of a derivative defines the degree .... a degree of 1 is linear

    for example, \[\frac{ d^2y }{dx^2 }+(\frac{ 1-x }{ 2-sinx })\frac{ dy }{ dx }+2y=siny\] ,is it linear or not linear and why? @amistre64

    the degree is 1, so its linear the order is 2, since there is a 2nd derivative in there

    \[\left(\frac{ d^2y }{dx^2 }\right)^1+(\frac{ 1-x }{ 2-sinx })\left(\frac{ dy }{ dx }\right)^1+2y=siny\]
