Linear...

#### Explanation:

Linear equations:

$y = m x + c$

So for example $x - 7 y = 1$ is linear

Linear equations ae those who's $x$'s have at most power one, so it can have $a {x}^{0}$ or $b {x}^{1}$ included

Non - Linear:

These are equations who's $x$'s hvae power great than 1,

For example $y = {x}^{2}$ and $y = {x}^{5355} - {x}^{72} + 1$ are non linear

So your equation is linear
