we know the formula for first order linear differential equation as D y o ver de ax plus p of x times. Why is Q backs? This is the formula listing the taxpayer. Now, in this context, you can see that we have a co sign of our term right next to the teak sits t co sign of our. Because of the specific term, we can conclude that this is not a linear differential equation because this doesn't fall. The formula that I outlined there's also listed in the textbook.
