Solve the differential equation:

dy/dx= (x^2+y^2)/(2xy)

I know how to solve this type of problem, but I am struggling getting all of the x's and y's on different sides of the equation. Thank you for your help.

  1. Note that the right-hand side is homogeneous (i.e. the total of exponents of x and y equals 2 for all terms), so a substitution of u=y/x will render the equation separable.

    dy/dx = u+x*du/dx

    Post if you have difficulties.

    hi wat method would i use and how would i solve this system of equations x^2+xy=3 3x^2+2xy-2y^2=7 In your first equation, solve for y... you should have xy= -x^2+3... divide this by x... so y = x^2+3/x plug what you solved for y
