1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Im learning about implicit solutions for differential equations. Anyways I took the derivative of a relation containing x and y to get dy/dy=1e^xy(y)/ e^xy(x)+1 2. Relevant equations Anywhoo it turns out to be a solution to the diff eq dy/dy = e^xy  y/ e^xy + x 3. The attempt at a solution Apparently you can take out an e^xy from dy/dy=1e^xy(y)/ e^xy(x)+1 in order to get to dy/dy = e^xy  y/ e^xy + x How exactly is this so? How does this work....I hope you understand my question

What is to be included in you numerators? What is to be included in you denominators? etc. ...

Assuming you mean dy/dx  I'll echo SammyS, who just posted while I was typing, and ask for more clarity. And it wouldn't hurt to post the original xyrelation, either.

Why can you Take out An E^xy?
Alright So Basically I just want to know how one goes from this
dy/dy= 1(e^xy)(y)/ (e^xy)(x)+1 to this dy/dy = (e^xy)  y/ (e^xy) + x by taking out an e^xy from the top and bottom

dy/dy= 1(e^xy)(y)/ (e^xy)(x)+1 which means: [itex]\displaystyle \frac{dy}{dx}=1(e^{xy})\frac{y}{e^{xy}}x+1\,.[/itex] And the equation: dy/dy = (e^xy)  y/ (e^xy) + x which means: [itex]\displaystyle \frac{dy}{dx}=(e^{xy})\frac{y}{e^{xy}}+x\,.[/itex] On the other hand: dy/dy= (1e^(xy)(y)) / ((e^(xy))(x)+1) means: [itex]\displaystyle \frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{1e^{xy}(y)}{e^{xy}(x)+1}\,.[/itex]
