(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[tex] ty' + y = \sin(t) [/tex]

state the following:

Order of the DE

1st 2nd 3rd or n/a

Linear

Nonlinear

Not Applicable

Homogeneous

Nonhomogeneous

Not Applicable

Constant Coefficients

Variable Coefficients

Not Applicable

2. The attempt at a solution

1st,

Linear,

Nonhomogeneous

but I dont know how to distinguish between constant or variable coefficients. Is there an easy way to remember the rule here? Thanks
