solve the initial value problem by separation of variables 8. dy/dx=x+1/xy, x>0, y(1)=-4

  • calculus (()) -

    Please check that you have sufficient parentheses.
    The problem posted (implicitly) is
    dy/dx = x+ (1/xy) which is not easily separable.

    I assume you wished to post:
    dy/dx = (x+1)/xy
    which can be separated as:
    ydy = (x+1)dx/x = (1+1/x)dx
    which can be easily integrated on both sides. The constant of integration can be obtained by substitution of the initial condition y(1)=-4.
