y dx + x ln x dy = 0 ; x > 0


my integrating factor is x..


so.. multiply with DE,


xy dx + x^2 ln x dy = 0


let M = xy ; N = x^2 ln x


dM/dy = x ; dN/dx = x + 2x ln x


the problem is.. i didn't get the exact equation after multiply the integrating factor.. i've double checked my integrating factor.. but.. still can't get the exact equation...

Try dividing by x instead.

Instead of multiplying the equation by your integration factor, divide by it instead.
