1.5: Linear First Order Equations Basic Definitions A linear first order equation has the form dy dx + P H x L y = Q H x L , where P H x L and Q H x L are both continuous on some interval I . An integrating factor is Μ 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: Considerdy dx + P H x L y = Q H x L , y H x 0 L = y 0 , whereP H x L andQ H x L arebothcontinuousonsomeintervalI.

###### "Before using Course Hero my grade was at 78%. By the end of the semester my grade was at 90%. I could not have done it without all the class material I found."
— Christopher R., University of Rhode Island '15, Course Hero Intern

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
