DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS 14 A homogeneous equation of the Homogeneous equations. and order degree is one which can be written in the form 15. first dx To test whether a function of x and y can be written of the right-hand side, y - x =v or form vx. e. the x's all cancel, the test is satisfied. _, ,..
