Homework Help: Differential Equations problem

  1. Sep 30, 2007 #1
    [SOLVED] Differential Equations problem

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    (x - y ln(y) + y ln(x))dx + x(ln(y) - ln(x))dy = 0

    Solving for general solution.

    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    I have attempted for exactness, have attempted at separating the variables, checked if it was homogeneous, and thrown every method I know at this problem. I am usually excellent with DE, I am at a loss with this problem.

    Nevermind, it's homogenous. After you factor out a -y from the first term it becomes more obvious.

    Thanks anyway!
