Wikipedia gives a complicated explanation.

It may help for you to explain what math course you're taking. - Mar 9th 2010, 02:13 AMHallsofIvy
A "linear combination" of variables, vectors, etc. is simply one in which the only things you do to the objects is multiply by constants and add or subtract.

In other words, there are no squares or anything more complicated.
