# Solve the following differential equation (x2 − yx2 ) dy + (y2 + xy2) dx = 0 - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Solve the following differential equation

(x2 − yx2 ) dy + (y2 + xy2) dx = 0

#### Solution

(x2 − yx2 ) dy + (y2 + xy2) dx = 0

∴ x2 (1 - y) dy = - y2 (1 + x) dx

∴ ((1-y)/y^2)dy = - ((1+x)/x^2)dx

Integrating on both sides, we get

int(1/y^2- 1/y) dy = - int (1/x^2+1/x)dx

∴ -1/y - log |y| = - (-1/x + log  | x |)+c

∴(-1)/y - log |y| = 1/x - log  | x |+c

∴ log  | x | - log | y | = 1/x + 1/y + c
