Exercises 2.5 equation has an integrating factor depending on y alone. Also, since ∂M/∂y ∂N/∂x N = (6 y 2 +4 y ) (3 y 2 +2 y ) 3 y 2 x xy = 3 y 2 y x (3 y 2 y ) = 1 x , the equation has an integrating factor depending on x . Writing the equation in the form dx dy = 3 y 2 x xy 2 y 3 + y 2 = xy (3 y +2) 2 y 2 ( y +1) = y (3 y 2 y 2 ( y x we conclude that it is separable and linear with x as the dependent variable. 3. This equation is not separable because of the factor ( y 2 xy ). It is not linear because of the factor y 2 . To see if it is exact, we compute M y ( x, y )and N x ( x, y ), and see that M y ( x, y )2 y x 6 = 2 x = N x ( x, y ) . Therefore, the equation is not exact. To see if we can Fnd an integrating factor of the form µ ( x ), we compute ∂M ∂y ∂N ∂x N = 2 y x x 2 , which is not a function of x alone. To see if we can Fnd an integrating factor of the form
