How to Solve??? (We’re looking for a function f(x, y) such that f x = M and f y = N.) Set f x = M and integrate with respect to x to get an expression for f . Differentiate your expression with respect to y to get an expression for f y . Set f y = N . Solve for g ( y ). f ( x, y ) = C is the general solution. Math 2860 Summer 2010: Lecture 2 Page 2 of 25

Example 1: Solve . (6 xy 1) dx (3 x 2 y ) dy 0 Solution: Is it exact? Set f x = M and integrate with respect to x to get an expression for f . Differentiate your expression with respect to y to get an expression for f y . Set f y = N . Solve for g ( y ). f ( x, y ) = C is the general solution. Math 2860 Summer 2010: Lecture 2 Page 3 of 25
