I've been confused for a little while as my teacher in dif. eq.'s taught us about homogeneous equations, where you can call an eq. homogeneous if all terms are of the same degree. But then, when seeing linear dif. equations we were taught that an homogeneous eq. is one with certain form and equal to zero. Ok to get to the point, I'm confused because I am sometimes asked whether an eq. is homogeneous or not...but I mean, it could not be homogeneous according to the first definition that I was taught and it could be homogeneous according to the second one...so what is a correct answer here??(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks for any help and I hope I got myself clear
