Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2e^(x/y) = xy e^(xy^(1)) = xy differentiate, \[[\frac{x}{y^2}\frac{dy}{dx}+\frac{1}{y}]e^{xy^{1}}=1\frac{dy}{dx}\] \[\frac{dy}{dx}(1\frac{xe^{xy^{1}}}{y^2})=1\frac{e^{xy^{1}}}{y}\] \[\huge \frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{1\frac{e^{xy^{1}}}{y}}{(1\frac{xe^{xy^{1}}}{y^2})}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait sam how did you get from \[[−xy2dydx+1y]exy−1=1−dydx dydx(1−xexy−1y2)=1−exy−1y\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2There's 2 steps there, 1)multiply e^{xy^{1}} into [−xy2dydx+1y] 2)moving the dy/dx from RHS to LHS then factor dy/dx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0can you show me how to equate that to [ y * ( y  e^(x/y) ) ] / [ y^2  xe^(x/y) ] ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we can start with \[e^{\frac{x}{y}}\times \frac{yxy'}{y^2}=1y'\] we can do it step by step, it is essentially algebra from here on in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i would a) multiply both sides by \(y^2\) b) put everything with a \(y'\) on one side and everything else on the other c) factor \(y'\) out of the terms d) divide
