i was asked to identify the following, linear? homogeneous? variable/constant coefficient?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

note: x' = dx/dt

3(t^2)x'' = tx' + 4x -In(t)

I thought this is a linear, non-homogenous equation with variable coefficient, but the answer said this eqt has constant coefficient.. can someone please explain to me why?

Thanks
