y`= (1-2y-4x)/(1+y+2x)

how do you treat it?

Now try the substitution [tex]u = y + 2x[/tex], it should become separable.

how'd you think of making that substitution?

[tex]y' = \frac{{ax + by + c}}{{a'x + b'y + c'}}[/tex]

Consider the nominator and denominator as 2 lines.

Case 1: they intersect -> substitute so you move the intersection to the origine to lose the constant term, making it homogenous

Case 2: they're parallel -> there is a k that you can factor out (like in this case) to get the same coefficients in x and y, substitue for that expression.

In a bit more detail, in case 1 (intersecting lines), search the point of intersection, I'll call it [itex]\left( {x_0 ,y_0 } \right)[/itex]

Then do the substitution:

[tex]\left\{ \begin{array}{l}

x = u + x_0 \\

y = v + y_0 \\

\end{array} \right[/tex]

The DE will become homogenous. The other case (parallel) is the one that applies to your problem and it will make the DE separable.

(1+ y+ 2x)dy+ (4x+ 2y-1)dx= 0. This is an "exact" equation.

but then when you integrate both sides,

say on the left side, what do you do with "2x"? is it still possible to integrate that?

I

(1+ y+ 2x)dy+ (4x+ 2y-1)dx (and I

dF= (1+ y+ 2x)dy+ (4x+ 2y- 1)dx. That, in turn, means that

[tex]\frac{\partial F}{\partial x}= 4x+ 2y- 1[/tex] and

[tex]\frac{\partial F}{\partial y}= 1+ y+ 2x[/tex].

Since the "partial derivative of F with respect to x" treats y as if it were a constant, an "anti-partial-derivative" of that first would give F(x,y)=2x

Now differentiate that with respect to y:

[tex]2x+ g'(y)= \frac{\partial F}{\partial y}= 1+ y+ 2x[/tex].

Fortunately for us, the "2x" terms on each side cancel (that's because this

Putting that into the previous function, F(x,y)= 2x

The original equation was "dF= 0" so F(x,y)= constant. Including the "C" above in that constant, 2x

If it's not though, the method I described above works for any of these types in general.

hmm... here's my work:

suppose v= y+2x

=> v`= y`+2

so y`= (1-2v)/(1+v)

=> v`= 3/(1+v)

=> (1+v)dv = 3dx

=> v+(v^2)/2 = 2x+c

=> y+2x +(y^2 +4xy + 4x^2)/2 = 3x +c

however, the correct answer should be 2y - 2x + (y+2x)^2=c

does anybody know where my calculations went wrong?

[tex]y' = \frac{{1 - 2y - 4x}}{{1 + y + 2x}} = \frac{{ - 2\left( { - {\raise0.5ex\hbox{$\scriptstyle 1$}

\kern-0.1em/\kern-0.15em

\lower0.25ex\hbox{$\scriptstyle 2$}} + y + 2x} \right)}}{{1 + y + 2x}}[/tex]

Then using [itex]u = y + 2x \Leftrightarrow y = u - 2x \Leftrightarrow y' = u' - 2[/itex] gives

[tex]u' - 2 = \frac{{ - 2\left( { - {\raise0.5ex\hbox{$\scriptstyle 1$}

\kern-0.1em/\kern-0.15em

\lower0.25ex\hbox{$\scriptstyle 2$}} + u} \right)}}{{1 + u}} \Leftrightarrow u' = \frac{{1 - 2u}}{{1 + u}} + 2 = \frac{3}{{u + 1}}[/tex]

I believe you forgot that

But as HallsofIvy said, you can solve this as an exact DE too.

the result is still the same as yours, though...

so there's still some place that went wrong?

Solved for y, both solutions give (apart from a factor 2 for the constant, but that's still a constant):

[tex]y = \pm \sqrt {6x + c + 1} - 2x - 1[/tex]
