Homework Help: Arithmetic question

  1. Oct 25, 2007 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    is it possible to find M(x,y) if I know N(x,y) and the equation i need to solve is N(x,y)^M(x,y) - M(x,y)*e^N(x,y) = 0?

    both are linear functions

    thanks, this is part of a longer differential equation and the above equations is what I end up with. Just need some input please.

    Thanks!

    If M(x,y) is in terms of both x and y then I would say no, because you only have one equation and two unknowns
