Which of the following equations is not a linear equation?
A. 3x - 5 = 8x
B. 2 + 3x = 4
C. (x + 2)2 = 6
D. x = 1
Correct Answer: C
Step 1: An algebraic equation is said to be linear if the variable or variables in the equation are of first degree.
Step 2: In the equation (x + 2)2 = 6, x is raised to the power 2.
Step 3: So, (x + 2)2 = 6 is not a linear equation.
