Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\large ({{y \over x} + e^{xy}})dx + dy =0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First, multiply through by \(xe^{xy}\):$$(ye^{xy}+x)dx+xe^{xy}dy=0$$Do you know how to solve from here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It doesn't look seperable, I still have y in the exponent of the dx term

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If only there were some function \(f\) s.t. \(\frac{\partial f}{\partial x}=ye^{xy}+x\), \(\frac{\partial f}{\partial y}=xe^{xy}\)... (I didn't solve it using separation of variables)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you did partial differentiation...but I'm not quite sure of what

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Have you studied exact differential equations yet? If we integrate both sides of our original equation, assuming that there is some function \(f\) whose partial derivatives match whatever we've multiplied by \(dx\), \(dy\) respectively, we end up with \(f(x,y)=c\)... now, we merely need to determine what \(f\) is!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, we know it's not homogeneous:$$(\frac{y}x+e^{xy})dx+dy=0\\\frac{dy}{dx}=[\frac{y}x+e^{xy}]\\$$

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I get how you got that...but how does writing it as dy/dx help?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's to show how it's not homogeneous.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how can you tell it's not homogeneous?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Does \(\frac{ty}{tx}+e^{(tx)(ty)}=\frac{y}x+e^{xy}\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you haven't learned about homogeneous differential equations?

roadjester

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0homogeneous yes, ordinary, not a term we've used

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ordinary is on contrast with partial differential equations, where you have partial derivatives.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:p ok well tell me what you've been taught so far.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just separating the terms and substitution if the equation can't be solved on the spot

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't think it can be solved using either technique. Maybe you need to learn how to solve exact equations first.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use the substitution \(u(x)=xy(x).\) Then \(u^\prime=xy^\prime+y\). This results in an easy equation for \(u(x).\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0... are you seriously just posting links to what Mathematica or WolframAlpha spits out?
