As explained below.

#### Explanation:

Linear equations are also called first degree equations, as the highest power of the variable (or pronumeral) in these equations is 1. E.g. x + 5 = 9 is an equation of the first degree, which is often called a linear equation

Given

a. Degree of equation **1**, since the highest x term has power 1.

b. Linear equation

c. Leading coefficient of the highest x term is **-1** &

d. Constant term **+3**
