Homogeneous differential equations of the first order. Method of educated guess in this chapter, we will discuss one particularly simpleminded, yet often effective, method for. The equations of a linear system are independent if none of the equations can be derived algebraically from the others. Substituting this into the differential equation, we obtain.
