Actually I can't find if a differential equation is homogeneous or not(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I thought homogeneous is given by

dy/dx= f(x,y)/ g(x,y)

but it doesn't look like that

For eg:

dy/dx= (y+x-1)/(y-x+2) is not homogeneous at all though

f(x,y)=y+x-1 and g(x,y)=y-x+2

How can you tell that if an equation is homogeneous or not?

Thanks a lot :)
