Show that dy/dx=(x^2+xy+y^2)/x^2 is homogeneous. I did x^2 dy(x^2+xy+y^2)dx=0 but what's the next step?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(x^2+xy+y^2)/x^2 1 + y/x + (y/x)^2 you might try a vx=y substition

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then what's the answer for this problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do I plug that in for y?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, you plug that in for y/x = v y' = v'x + v

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1v'x + v = v^2 + v + 1 v'x = v^2 + 1 dv/(v^2 + 1) = dx/x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How did you get v'x+v?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1its a substition: v = y/x ,,, therefore vx = y take the derivative of both sides (think of the product rule) v'x + v = y' sub in all the parts as needed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i already presented you with the seperable form ... i would appreciate it if you took the time to work on it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this is implicit stuff right? as opposed to partials?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1of course, the dy/dx suggests as such

Idealist

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the answer is just dv/(v^2+1)=dx/x?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1of course not, thats the seperable form that is very doable to determine what v equates to, then known what v equates to, equate that back to y/x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1theny oull have all the parts needed to determine if this is homogenous (=0)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So from x dv=(v^2+1)dx, I got x^2/2=v^3/3+v+c, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\int(\frac{1}{v^2+1})~dv=\frac1x ~dx\] \[tan^{1}(v)=ln(x)+C\] \[v=tan(ln(x)+C)\] \[\frac yx=tan(ln(x)+C)\] \[y=x~tan(ln(x)+C)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the answer is y=x tan(ln abs(x)+c), right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that is the solution for the diffy Q yes, but your question is to show its homogenous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1define y' now that you know y

Idealist

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I did product rule and got sec^2(ln abs(x)+c)+tan(ln abs(x)+c), is that the final answer?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you are building the parts you need to determine the proper answer :) lets rewrite that as: \[\tan^2(\ln(x)+c) + \tan(\ln(x)+c) + 1=\frac{x^2+xy+y^2}{x^2}\]plug in y and simplify to your hearts content

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1or to clean it up, we already know that tan(ln(x)+c) = y so you could go that route as well

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\tan^2(\ln(x)+c) + \tan(\ln(x)+c) + 1=\frac{x^2+xy+y^2}{x^2}\] \[y^2 + y + 1=\frac{x^2+xy+y^2}{x^2}\] \[x^2y^2 +x^2 y + x^2=x^2+xy+y^2\] \[x^2y^2 +x^2 y=+xy+y^2\] does it work out?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But y=x tan(ln abs(x)+c), not tan(ln abs(x)+c).

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1good eye ... so that should fix it better :) replace tan(ln(x)+c) with y/x

Idealist

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, so the final answer would be y^2+xy+x^2=x^2+xy+y^2, right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1looks that way yes, if a adjust for my mistake :) \[x^2\frac{y^2}{x^2} +x^2 \frac{y}{x}+x^2=x^2+xy+y^2\] \[y^2 +xy+x^2=x^2+xy+y^2\]which zeros out
