y because of y 2 . However, writing it in the form (y 2 − 1)(dx/dy) + x = 0, we see that it is linear in x.
4. The diﬀerential equation is ﬁrst-order. Writing it in the form u(dv/du) + (1 + u)v = ueu we see that it is linear
in v. However, writing it in the form (v + uv − ueu )(du/dv) + u = 0, we see that it is nonlinear in u.

y = tan x + cos x ln(sec x + tan x). Then y + y = tan x. 15. Writing ln(2X − 1) − ln(X − 1) = t and diﬀerentiating implicitly we obtain X 2

22. The function y(x) is not continuous at x = 0 since lim y(x) = 5 and lim y(x) = −5. Thus, y (x) does not

solution on (π/2, 5π/2).
27. (y )2 + 1 = 0 has no real solution.
28. The only solution of (y )2 + y 2 = 0 is y = 0, since if y = 0, y 2 > 0 and (y )2 + y 2 ≥ y 2 > 0. 29. The ﬁrst derivative of f (t) = et is et . The ﬁrst derivative of f (t) = ekt is kekt . The diﬀerential equations are
y = y and y = ky, respectively. 30. Any function of the form y = cet or y = ce−t is its own second derivative. The corresponding diﬀerential
equation is y − y = 0. Functions of the form y = c sin t or y = c cos t have second derivatives that are the
negatives of themselves. The diﬀerential equation is y + y = 0.
31. Since the nth derivative of φ(x) must exist if φ(x) is a solution of the nth order diﬀerential equation, all lowerorder derivatives of φ(x) must exist and be continuous. [Recall that a diﬀerentiable function is continuous.]
32. Solving the system
c1 y1 (0) + c2 y2 (0) = 2
c1 y1 (0) + c2 y2 (0) = 0 3 Exercises 1.1
for c1 and c2 we get
c1 = 2y2 (0)
y1 (0)y2 (0) − y1 (0)y2 (0) and c2 = − Thus, a particular solution is

In the latter case we get y = ( f (t)dt)dt + c1 t + c2 .
34. Solving for y using the quadratic formula we obtain the two diﬀerential equations
y = 1

t 1 + 3t6 , so the diﬀerential equation cannot be put in the form dy/dt = f (t, y).
35. The diﬀerential equation yy − ty = 0 has normal form dy/dt = t. These are not equivalent because y = 0 is a
solution of the ﬁrst diﬀerential equation but not a solution of the second.
36. Diﬀerentiating we get y = c1 + 3c2 t2 and y = 6c2 t. Then c2 = y /6t and c1 = y − ty /2, so
y= y − ty
2 y
6t t+ 1
t3 = ty − t2 y
3 and the diﬀerential equation is t2 y − 3ty + 3y = 0. 37. (a) From y = emt we obtain y = memt . Then y + 2y = 0 implies
memt + 2emt = (m + 2)emt = 0.
Since emt > 0 for all t, m = −2. Thus y = e−2t is a solution. (b) From y = emt we obtain y = memt and y = m2 emt . Then y − 5y + 6y = 0 implies
m2 emt − 5memt + 6emt = (m − 2)(m − 3)emt = 0.
Since emt > 0 for all t, m = 2 and m = 3. Thus y = e2t and y = e3t are solutions.
(c) From y = tm we obtain y = mtm−1 and y = m(m − 1)tm−2 . Then ty + 2y = 0 implies
tm(m − 1)tm−2 + 2mtm−1 = [m(m − 1) + 2m]tm−1 = (m2 + m)tm−1
= m(m + 1)tm−1 = 0. Since tm−1 > 0 for t > 0, m = 0 and m = −1. Thus y = 1 and y = t−1 are solutions. (d) From y = tm we obtain y = mtm−1 and y = m(m − 1)tm−2 . Then t2 y − 7ty + 15y = 0 implies
t2 m(m − 1)tm−2 − 7tmtm−1 + 15tm = [m(m − 1) − 7m + 15]tm = (m2 − 8m + 15)tm = (m − 3)(m − 5)tm = 0. Since tm > 0 for t > 0, m = 3 and m = 5. Thus y = t3 and y = t5 are solutions.
38. When g(t) = 0, y = 0 is a solution of a linear equation.
39. (a) Solving (10 − 5y)/3x = 0 we see that y = 2 is a constant solution. (b) Solving y 2 + 2y − 3 = (y + 3)(y − 1) = 0 we see that y = −3 and y = 1 are constant solutions.
(c) Since 1/(y − 1) = 0 has no solutions, the diﬀerential equation has no constant solutions. 4 Exercises 1.1
(d) Setting y = 0 we have y = 0 and 6y = 10. Thus y = 5/3 is a constant solution.
40. From y = (1 − y)/(x − 2) we see that a tangent line to the graph of y(x) is possibly vertical at x = 2. Intervals
of existence could be (−∞, 2) and (2, ∞). 41. One solution is given by the upper portion of the graph with domain approximately (0, 2.6). The other solution
is given by the lower portion of the graph, also with domain approximately (0, 2.6).
42. One solution, with domain approximately (−∞, 1.6) is the portion of the graph in the second quadrant together
with the lower part of the graph in the ﬁrst quadrant. A second solution, with domain approximately (0, 1.6)
is the upper part of the graph in the ﬁrst quadrant. The third solution, with domain (0, ∞), is the part of the
graph in the fourth quadrant.

and 2y 3 = x3 . Substituting y 3 = x3 /2 into x3 + y 3 = 3xy we get

Thus, there are vertical tangent lines at x = 0 and x = 22/3 , or at (0, 0) and (22/3 , 21/3 ). Since 22/3 ≈ 1.59, the
estimates of the domains in Problem 42 were close. 45. Since φ (x) > 0 for all x in I, φ(x) is an increasing function on I. Hence, it can have no relative extrema on I.
46. (a) When y = 5, y = 0, so y = 5 is a solution of y = 5 − y. (b) When y > 5, y < 0, and the solution must be decreasing. When y < 5, y > 0, and the solution must be
increasing. Thus, none of the curves in color can be solutions.
y (c) 10 5 −5 5 t 47. (a) y = 0 and y = a/b. 5 Exercises 1.1
(b) Since dy/dx = y(a − by) > 0 for 0 < y < a/b, y = φ(x) is increasing on this interval. Since dy/dx < 0 for
y < 0 or y > a/b, y = φ(x) is decreasing on these intervals.
(c) Using implicit diﬀerentiation we compute
d2 y
= y(−by ) + y (a − by) = y (a − 2by).
dx2
Solving d2 y/dx2 = 0 we obtain y = a/2b. Since d2 y/dx2 > 0 for 0 < y < a/2b and d2 y/dx2 < 0 for
a/2b < y < a/b, the graph of y = φ(x) has a point of inﬂection at y = a/2b.

21. The diﬀerential equation has a unique solution at (1, 4).

23. The diﬀerential equation is not guaranteed to have a unique solution at (2, −3).
24. The diﬀerential equation is not guaranteed to have a unique solution at (−1, 1).
25. (a) A one-parameter family of solutions is y = cx. Since y = c, xy = xc = y and y(0) = c · 0 = 0.
(b) Writing the equation in the form y = y/x we see that R cannot contain any point on the y-axis. Thus,
any rectangular region disjoint from the y-axis and containing (x0 , y0 ) will determine an interval around x0
and a unique solution through (x0 , y0 ). Since x0 = 0 in part (a) we are not guaranteed a unique solution
through (0, 0).
(c) The piecewise-deﬁned function which satisﬁes y(0) = 0 is not a solution since it is not diﬀerentiable at

equation. 26. (a) Since (b) Solving y(0) = tan c = 0 we obtain c = 0 and y = tan x. Since tan x is discontinuous at x = ±π/2, the
solution is not deﬁned on (−2, 2) because it contains ±π/2. (c) The largest interval on which the solution can exist is (−π/2, π/2).

and y = −1/(1 + t). Being sure to include t = 0, we see that the interval of existence of y = 1/(1 − t) is
(−∞, 1), while the interval of existence of y = −1/(1 + t) is (−1, ∞).

(−∞, 1/y0 ) when y0 > 0 or (1/y0 , ∞) when y0 < 0.
(d) By inspection we see that y = 0 is a solution on (−∞, ∞).

into y + 2y = 3x − 6 we get 0 + 0 = 3x0 − 6 or x0 = 2. 31. The theorem guarantees a unique (meaning single) solution through any point. Thus, there cannot be two
distinct solutions through any point.
32. Diﬀerentiating y = x4 /16 we obtain y = x3 /4 = x(x4 /16)1/2 , so the ﬁrst
function is a solution of the diﬀerential equation. Since y = 0 satisﬁes the
diﬀerential equation and limx→0+ x3 /4 = 0, the second function is also a solution
of the diﬀerential equation. Both functions satisfy the condition y(2) = 1.
Theorem 1.1 simply guarantees the existence of a unique solution on some
interval containing (2, 1). In this, such an interval could be (0, 4), where the two
functions are identical. y

and y = 4e2x + 3x2 + 5.
34. The antiderivative of y = 12x − 2 is y = 6x2 − 2x + c1 . From the equation of the tangent line we see that
when x = 1, y = 4 and y = −1 (the slope of the tangent line). Solving −1 = 6(1)2 − 2(1) + c1 we get c1 = −5.
The antiderivative of y = 6x2 − 2x − 5 is y = 2x3 − x2 − 5x + c2 . Setting x = 1 and y = 4 we get 4 = −4 + c2 ,
so c2 = 8 and y = 2x3 − x2 − 5x + 8. 9 Exercises 1.3 Exercises 1.3

2. Let b be the rate of births and d the rate of deaths. Then b = k1 P and d = k2 P . Since dP/dt = b − d, the 1. diﬀerential equation is dP/dt = k1 P − k2 P . 3. Let b be the rate of births and d the rate of deaths. Then b = k1 P and d = k2 P 2 . Since dP/dt = b − d, the
diﬀerential equation is dP/dt = k1 P − k2 P 2 . 4. Let P (t) be the number of owls present at time t. Then dP/dt = k(P − 200 + 10t). 5. From the graph we estimate T0 = 180◦ and Tm = 75◦ . We observe that when T = 85, dT /dt ≈ −1. From the

technological innovation is adopted is proportional to the number of people who have adopted the innovation
and also to the number of people, y(t), who have not yet adopted it. If one person who has adopted the
innovation is introduced into the population then x + y = n + 1 and

100 Thus dA/dt = A/100.
10. The rate at which salt is entering the tank is
R1 = (3 gal/min) · (2 lb/gal) = 6 lb/min.
Since the solution is pumped out at a slower rate, it is accumulating at the rate of (3 − 2)gal/min = 1 gal/min.
After t minutes there are 300 + t gallons of brine in the tank. The rate at which salt is leaving is
