Submitted by Horlamide Luqman on February 13, 2017 - 12:56am

Hello ,please someone should help with out with these Diffrential equations

a. xdy + ydx = x^3 y^6 dx

b. cosysin2xdx +(cos^2y - cos^x)dy = 0

## Part (a) xdy + ydx = x^3 y^6

Part (a) xdy + ydx = x^3 y^6 dx

$x \, dy + y \, dx = x^3 y^6 \, dx$

$dy + \dfrac{1}{x}y \, dx = x^2 y^6 \, dx$

$Q = x^2$

$n = 6$

$(1 - n) = -5$

$z = y^{1 - n} = y^{-5}$

Integrating Factor

$\begin{align}

\displaystyle u & = e^{(1 - n)\int P\,dx} \\

& = e^{-5\int \frac{1}{x}\,dx} \\

& = e^{-5 \ln x} \\

& = e^{\ln x^{-5}} \\

& = x^{-5}

\end{align}$

Thus,

$\displaystyle zu = (1 - n) \int Qu \, dx + C$

$\displaystyle y^{-5}x^{-5} = -5 \int x^2 (x^{-5}) \, dx + C$

$\displaystyle x^{-5}y^{-5} = -5 \int x^{-3} \, dx + C$

$x^{-5}y^{-5} = -5 \left( \dfrac{x^{-2}}{-2} \right) + C$

$x^{-5}y^{-5} = \frac{5}{2} x^{-2} + C$
