The number of arbitrary constants in the general solution of a differential equation of order three is ________.

Toolbox:
• If the equation has $'n'$ arbitary constants, then its differential equation will be of order $n$
The number of arbitrary constants in the general solution of a differential equation of order three is 3
A differential equation of order $n$ can be obtained, if we eliminate $n$ constants.
Here Since it is of order $3$, then the number of arbitary constant should be $3$
