#### Question

Determine order and degree(if defined) of differential equation y′ + y = e^{x}

#### Solution

y′ + y = e^{x}

`=>y' + y - e^x = 0`

The highest order derivative present in the differential equation is y'. Therefore, its order is one.

The given differential equation is a polynomial equation in y' and the highest power raised to y' is one. Hence, its degree is one.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
