however, if i differenate the 1st equation, dy/dx=v+x*dv/dx

and if i differenate the 2nd equation, dv/dx=(1/x)*dy/dx + [-1/(x^2)]y

but both differenated equations don't seem the same...

does somebody know where my calculuations went wrong?

becomes x (dv/dx) = dy/dx - y/x, but v = y/x

so x (dv/dx) = dy/dx - v

or

x (dv/dx) + v = dy/dx, which is same as other equation.
