Given a system of two equations and two variables, x and y:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

x + ay = c

x + by^{2}= d

I believe this system can be solved uniquely (please correct me if I'm wrong). My question is that of independance. Would one be correct in the statement that these two equations arelinearlyindependent, even though the second equation is not linear?
