1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

I am to show that Schrodinger's equation is linear.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I think it is sufficient to show that if psi1 and psi 2 are the solutions of Schrodinger equation, then any linear combination of them, say (a psi1+b psi 2) is also a soluton to that equation.

Am I missing something?

No, nothing. If you show that then the SE is linear.
