Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, this is a bit strange because they want me to substitute u=y^(1n)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so, im thinking to start off, i will get x and y on one side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\large xy' + y = −2xy^2\]Hmm it's been a lil while.. I'm trying to remember how to do these. I think you want to get the equation to this form. ~Divide both sides by x, Divide both sides by y^2. \[\large y^{2}y' + \frac{1}{x}y^{1} = −2\] Then let \(\large u=y^{1}\). Hmm \(\large u'=y^{2}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya im a bit shaky on this but im caught up to you zep, so the u'=y'y^2 , can you explain that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0u' = y^2y' is what your going to substitute. essentially, you're going to get a linear differential euqation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You should get something like: u' + p(x)u=g(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\large y'+p(x)y=q(x)y^n\] Dividing both sides by y^n, \(\large \color{royalblue}{y^{n}y'}+p(x)\color{orangered}{y^{1n}}=q(x)\) Making the sub \(\large \color{orangered}{u=y^{1n}}\) \(\large u'=(1n)y^{n}y' \qquad \rightarrow \qquad \color{royalblue}{\dfrac{1}{1n}u'=y^{n}y'}\) Giving us, yah something like what abbot said :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\large xy' + y = −2xy^2\]Dividing each side by x gives us,\[\large y' + \frac{1}{x}y = −2y^2\]Dividing each side by y^2 (Because that is our y^n is this case) gives,\[\large y^{2}y' + \frac{1}{x}\color{royalblue}{y^{12}} = −2\]Then we want to make that blue term our \(\large u\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Our \(\large n\) in this case is 2, because our y^n was the term on the RIGHT side of the equation. \(\large u=y^{1n} \qquad \rightarrow \qquad u=y^{21}\qquad \rightarrow \qquad u=y^{1}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I think maybe you missed a negative when taking the derivative of your u. \(\huge u=y^{1} \qquad \rightarrow \qquad u'=\color{red}{}y^{2}y'\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh the derivative gotcha

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I assume we're taking the derivative with respect to \(\large x\). That's probably why we get a prime term on each side :d

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Remember that before you can get an integrating factor and all that fun stuff, your leading term needs to be positive.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0should i just switch sides?

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Or maybe a better way to say that would be, it needs to be in standard form* no coefficients or anything on the leading term.

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3And your equation should be \(\large u'\dfrac{1}{x}u=2\) Positive 2 on the right. I think we missed that earlier.

zepdrix

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes, if you want to be thorough, then multiply through by your integrating factor. I usually skip that step. But it might be good not to skip it since you're learning it still.
