Hello everyone, yet another obscure problem on web work. No examples like this in the book nor did the professor go over it so i was wondering if someone can let me know what exactly they are wanting me to do!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find an explicit or implicit solutions to the differential equation

What i did was divide through by dx, so i got

Then

I let (x^2-4xy) = M, and N = x;

My = -4x;

Nx = 1;

Not exact.

Did i f this up or what?
