1st check to make sure that they are exact.
\(M = 2y^2 - 6xy \) \(N= 3xy-4x^2\) \(\frac{\partial M}{\partial y}=4y - 6x\) \(\frac{\partial N}{\partial x}=3y-8x\) \[\frac{\frac{\partial N}{\partial x}-\frac{\partial M}{\partial y}}{M}=\frac{3y-8x-(4y - 6x)}{2y(y-3x)}\]Doesn't go right..
\[\frac{ ∂M }{ ∂x }=\frac{ ∂N }{ ∂y }\]

check your partial derivatives. they should match up
either that or your teacher is horrible and wants you to solve this another way ll
integrating factor!
But I couldn't find a suitable integrating factor... :'(
ah yes this is not an exact solution one
UnkleR is right. Find the integrating factor to make it exact.
That's why I tried that partial.. - partial.. / ... to find one..
is that a hint... try getting one in such that it looks like above
You were on the right path.
\[\frac{ M_y-N_x }{ -M }\]
That's your integrating factor.
The way I learn to get an integrating factor is by showing \(\frac{\frac{\partial M}{\partial y}-\frac{\partial N}{\partial x}}{N}\) or \(\frac{\frac{\partial N}{\partial x}-\frac{\partial M}{\partial y}}{M}\) equals to a function of x/y .. But for this (and the next question), I got troubles..
\[\frac{\partial M}{\partial y}\neq \frac{\partial N}{\partial x}\] \[R=R(x,y)=x^ny^m\] \[\frac{\partial R(x,y)M}{\partial y}= \frac{\partial R(x,y)N}{\partial x}\] \[R_y(x,y)M+R(x,y)\frac{\partial M}{\partial y}=R_x(x,y)N+R(x,y)\frac{\partial N}{\partial x}\]
How... does... that... work...?
which bit
\[\frac{\partial R(x,y)M}{\partial y}= \frac{\partial R(x,y)N}{\partial x}\]And \[R_y(x,y)M+R(x,y)\frac{\partial M}{\partial y}=R_x(x,y)N+R(x,y)\frac{\partial N}{\partial x}\]
well we want a integrating factor that will make the partial derivatives equal (which will makes the equation exact) applying the product rule for derivatives on both sides we get that last line i have used mixed notation for derivatives for some reason \[Z_w\leftrightarrow\frac{\partial Z}{\partial w}\](these mean the same thing, just written differently )
so you know \[R,M,N\]substitute these in
take the partial derivatives
Is R the integrating factor?
So, I should multiply the equation by R, right?
\[R=x^ny^m\]\[M=2y^2-6xy\]\[N=3xy-4x^2\] \[\frac{\partial R}{\partial y} M + \frac{\partial M}{\partial y} R= \frac{\partial R}{\partial x} N+ \frac{\partial N}{\partial x}R\] \[LS\]\[=mx^ny^{m-1}(2y^2-6xy) + (4y-6x)x^ny^m\]\[=2mx^ny^{m+1}-6mx^{n+1}y^m + 4y^{m+1}x^n – 6x^{n+1}y^m\]\[(2m+4)x^ny^{m+1}-(6m+1)x^{n+1}y^m\] \[RS\]\[=nx^{n-1}y^m(3xy-4x^2) + (3y-8x)x^ny^m\]\[=3nx^ny^{m+1}-4nx^{n+1}y^m+3x^ny^{m+1} – 8x^{n+1}y^m\]\[(3n+3)x^ny^{m+1} – (4n+8)x^{n+1}y^m\] So, \[(2m+4)x^ny^{m+1}-(6m+1)x^{n+1}y^m = (3n+3)x^ny^{m+1} – (4n+8)x^{n+1}y^m\] 2m+4 = 3n+3 6m+1 = 4n+8 m=5/2 , n=2 But that is not right :\
hmm, i cannot see any error in your working , how do you know its not right?
Because the book whispered me the answer :(
\[\tiny \text{can you whisper it to me too please , }\]
\[\tiny \color{white}{\mu =xy} \]
i see
\(\huge \color{red}{\mu =xy}\) now, i see also.
well we were close \[x^2y^{5/2}(2y^2 - 6xy)\text dx + x^2y^{5/2}(3xy-4x^2)\text dy =0\] \[(2x^2y^{9/2} - 6x^3y^{7/2})\text dx +(3x^3y^{7/2}-4x^4y^{5/2})\text dy =0\] \[\frac{\partial MR}{\partial y}=9x^2y^{7/2}-21x^3y^{5/2}\] \[\frac{\partial NR}{\partial x}=9x^2y^{7/2}-16x^3y^{5/2}\]
I.... don't .... understand.... :(
Hmm... I should do it all over again?!
xy vs x^2 y^(5/2) They look too different to me!
life would be so much easier if we could use substitution...and not IF.
Then, this, again, proves that life is not easy :(
well i used 6 bits of paper , and got the same answer we had before, bother
6... bits?! of paper?! :(
checking RS
2m+4 = 3n+3 6m+6 = 4n+8 m=1 n=1
just one silly mistale!
i see it now , such a tiny tiny mistale
thank you so much @UnkleRhaukus , i learned a new method today...R=x^m y^n
OK, so now we have the integrating factor \[R(x,y)=\mu(x,y)=xy\], lets integrate!
actually , i wanted to see the look at @RolyPoly face, when he/she finds out how \(\tiny tiny\) the error was :P
\[\int \mu N\text dx\]\[=\int (2xy^3−6x^2y^2)\text dx\]\[=x^2y^3-2x^3y^2+g(y)\] \[\int\mu M\text dy\]\[=\int(3x^2y^2−4x^3y)\text dy\]\[=x^2y^3-2x^3y^2+h(x)\] \[\implies g(y)=h(x)=0\] \[f(x,y)=x^2y^3-2x^3y^2=c\]
or the other way \[f(x,y)=\int \mu N\text dx=x^2y^3-2x^3y^2+g(y)\] \[\frac{f(x,y)}{\text dy}=3x^2y^2-4x^3y+g'(y)=\mu M=3x^2y^2−4x^3y\] \[\implies g'(y)=0\]\[g(y)=c_1\] \[f(x,y)=x^2y^3-2x^3y^2+c_1=0\]
wasn't that fun?

Mummy!!!! I want to die :'(
lol :P
plz don't die.
She! It's a she!
Thanks for rescue!!!! I'm sorry for my silly mistake!!

Hmmm.. So must I use \[\frac{\partial R}{\partial y} M + \frac{\partial M}{\partial y} R= \frac{\partial R}{\partial x} N+ \frac{\partial N}{\partial x}R\] to find R?! You know it's a pain :(
yes, it is pain, but there is different kind of pleasure when we arrive at correct answer after all that!
I must take this pain then.. Thanks again for all of your help!! Much appreciated!! (Btw, who wants the medal?)
if you were wondering what the solution 'looks' like ,...

Ugly :( How do you get the plot?
i used a graphing program ,
That is..?
