Would the answer to this problem be considered to be a second order because it relies on both of the concentrations or would it be a first order because both concentrations are first order?

The reaction would be first order because the reaction rate is increased in direct proportion to each reactant's concentration.

If you increase or decrease a concentration and its rate of reaction also increases or decreases at the same rate, you have a first order reaction
