like for example if we had a 2nd order differential equation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

is it possible that we can have more than 2 non-trivial solutions to it?

same question applies to 1st order,.................................Nth order

is it always the case that we get the number of solutions same as the order of the equation???

thanks!
