```							Theorderof adifferential equationis theorderof the highestorderderivative present in theequation. Thedegreeof adifferential equationis the power of the highestorderderivative in theequation.Example:d2y/dx2 +(dy/dx) - 3x + 2y = 8Above differencial equation has order 2 (the highest derivative appearing is the second derivative) and degree 1 (the power of the highest derivative is 1.)

```								Order of a differential equation is defined as the order of the highest order derivative of the dependent variable with respect to the independent variable involved in the given differential equation.               ex : ( d2y/dx2) + dy/dx +y=0                       here order is two as the highest order term is   d2y/dx2	degree it is the power of  hieght order term                ex   ( d2y/dx2)4 + dy/dx +y=0                                          here  the hieght order term is  d2y/dx2 and it is raised to power of 4 degree is 4                 	 Order and degree (if defined) of a differential equation are alway positive integers	the dedgree is defined only wn the equation is polynomial in dervative terms it is not define wn deravative term is in exponent function or trignometric or log function             ex    : (dy/dx) +sin(dy/dx)=0                             the degree is not definePLZ APPROVE IF USEFUL and in case of any doubts ask in ans box
