Expert Answer:

Combustion is the complete oxidation of organic compound into carbon dioxide and water molecules in the presence of oxygen gas whereas oxidation is the addition of oxygen in a compound or addition with an element.
 

For example:

CH4 + 2O2 → CO2 + 2H2O
2C2H6 + 7O2 → 4CO2+ 6 H2O
C3H8+5O→ 3CO2+4H2O
