Part of solving a differential equation involves integrating M(x,y) with respect to x, where M(x,y) = x + tan

^{-1}(y). What are the steps to integrating the arctan portion?

[tex]\int[/tex] tan

^{-1}(y) dx

Thank you.

If I'm not mistaken, it should just be tan^{-1}(y) * x

hi lolallday! welcome to pf!

i agree with

a function of y does not depend on x, so it integrates (and differentiates) as a constant
