\frac{dx}{dt} = -5x+2xy[/tex]

[tex]

\frac{dy}{dt} = -4y+3xy

[/tex]

Are these linear or nonlinear? I'm inclined to say non-linear but using maple it tells me it's linear ( odeadvisor(ode1, [linear]); returns [_linear] where ode1 is dx/dt).

Also, are they competitive or cooperative? I know it's not predator prey. I've graphed it and all solutions tend to 0, but I don't know what type that is (I can't find an explanation of cooperative/competitive anywhere on the internet)
