what is the difference between algebraic equations and linear equations????

Algebraic equations : The equations combination of a constant term ( any number ) and a variable ( alphabets ) .

And we can have algebric equations As :

*x*+

*y*= 5

*x*

^{2}- 2

*x*+ 5 = 0

Or

3

*x*

*y*

Or

5

*xy*+ 3

*x*

^{2}

So basically any type of equation can be called as algebraic equation .

Linear equation : We can say linear equation is a type of algebraic equation , And we can say all linear equations are algebraic equations , But not all algebraic equations are linear equations .

So

" A linear equation is an algebraic equation in which each term is either a constant or the product of a constant and (the first power of) a single variable. "

*x*+

*y*= 3 is a linear equation

And

*x*

^{2}- 2

*x*+ 5 = 0 is not a linear equation
