  • A linear differential equation of the form.$ \large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=(x+y)$ can be solved by substituting $x+y=z$ and $\large\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{dz}{dx}$$-1$
  • Then the variable can be seperated and integrated.
  • $ \int \large\frac{dx}{x}$$=\log x$
Given $(x+y)(dx-dy)=dx+dy$
This can be written as
=> $ dx(x+y-1)=dy(x+y+1)$
Let $x+y=z$ on differentiating w.r.t x we get
or $ \large\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{dz}{dx}-1$
Now substituting in equ (1) we get,
On seperating the variables we get
On integrating we get
$\large\frac{1}{2}\bigg[\int \frac{z}{z} $$dz-\int \large\frac{1}{z}$$dz\bigg]=\int dx$
=>$\large\frac{1}{2}\bigg[\int $$dz-\int \large\frac{1}{z}$$dz\bigg]=\int dx$
$\large\frac{1}{2}\bigg[$$z-\log z\bigg]=x+c$
$z-\log z=2x+c$
Now substituting for $z=(x+y)$
$y=x+\log (x+y)+c$
or $y-x=\log _e (x+y)$
$c\;e^{\large y-x}=x+y$
