  • If the linear differential equation of the form $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$+Py=Q$, then the required solution is $ye^{\int pdx}=Q \int e^{\int pdx}.dx+c$
  • Where $e^{\int pdx}$ is the integrating factor (I.F)
Given $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=e^{\large\frac{x^2}{2}}$$+xy$
Rearranging this we get,
This is the linear differential equation of the form $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$+Py=Q$,
Where $P=-x \;and\; Q=e^{\large\frac{x^2}{2}}$
Hence the reqired solution is
$y.e^{\int pdx}=\int Q. e^{\int pdx}+c$
$\int pdx=-\int x dx$
On integrating we get,
Hence $ [e^{\int pdx}]=e^{\Large\frac{-x^2}{2}}$
Hence the required solution is
$y.e^{\Large\frac{-x^2}{2}}=\int e^{\Large\frac{x^2}{2}}.e^{\Large\frac{-x^2}{2}}dx+c$
$y.e^{\large\frac{-x^2}{2}}=\int dx+c$
On integrating we get,
Hence the correct option is $C$
