# Solve the differential equation : (tan^−1 y−x)dy=(1+y^2)dx. - CBSE (Science) Class 12 - Mathematics

ConceptGeneral and Particular Solutions of a Differential Equation

#### Question

Solve the differential equation : (tan1yx)dy=(1+y2)dx.

#### Solution

(tan1yx)dy=(1+y2)dx.

Dividing both sides by (1 + y2), we get

((tan^(-1)y−x)dy)/(1+y^2)=dx.........(1)

Let t=tan-1 Y

Differentiating both sides with respect to y, we have

(dt)/dy=1/(1+y^2)

=>dt=1/(1+y^2)dy

From (1), we have

tdt−xdt=dx

⇒(t−x)dt=dx

=>dx/dt=t-x

therefore dx/dt+x=t......(2)

HereI.F.=e^(int(1)dt)=e^t

Hence, the solution of the differential equation (2) is given by

x(I.F.)=( I.F.)tdt

⇒xe^t=∫ e^t.tdt+C,

where C is an arbitrary constant

⇒xe^t=te^t−∫e^tdt+C

⇒xe^t=te^t−e^t+C

⇒x=t−1+Ce^(−t)

Substituting t=tan1y, we have

x=tan^(−1)y−1+Ce^(−tan^(−1))y

This is the general solution of the given differential equation.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
