An integrating factor is H x L = e P H x L dx . The Theory Notice that d dx A y H x L e P H x L dx E = y ' H x L e P H x L dx + y H x L P H x L e P H x L dx = e P H x L dx Q H x L . So, we can solve liner first order equations by multiply ing by an integrating factor, e P H x L dx . Hence, we have y H x L = e P H x L dx A Q H x L e P H x L dx dx + C E . Theorem: Consider dy dx + P H x L y = Q H x L , y H x L = y , where P H x L and Q H x L are both continuous on some interval I. Then the initial value problem has a unique solution given by y H x L = e P H x L dx A Q H x L e P H x L dx dx + C E H for an appropriate choice of C L which is defined on the entire interval I .
