Hello everyone I understand how to solve exact equations, but what happens when they arnt' exact? I'm confused on what i'm suppose to do! Does anyone feel like explaning hte process to me, if given an integrating factor/> or give me a website? Here is my problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Check that the equation below is not exact but becomes exact when multiplied by the integrating factor.

Solve the differential equation.

You can define the solution curve implicitly by a function in the form
