#### Question

Find the particular solution of the differential equation:

y(1+logx) dx/dy - xlogx = 0

when y = e2 and x = e

#### Solution

Given equation is

y(1 + logx) dx/dy -xlogx = 0

:. y(1+logx) dx/dy = xlogx

:. y(1+logx)dx = xlogx dy

Separating the variables

1/ydy = (1+logx)/(xlogx) dx

Integrating, we have

int1/y dy = int (1+logx)/(xlogx) dx

:.log|y| = log|xlogx|+logc

:. log|y| = log|cxlogx|

∴ y = cx log x is the general solution

Given x = e,    y = e2

∴ e2 = c.e.log e

∴ e^2 = c.e

∴ c = e

∴y = ex.logx

Is there an error in this question or solution?
