  • The linear differential equation of the form dy/dx = F(x,y), where F(x,y) is of the form g(x).h(y), where g(x) is a function of x and h(y) is a function of y is called variable seperable. Such equations can be solved by seperating the variables and integrating them.
Step 1:
Given $\large\frac{ydx - xdy}{y}$$= 0$
Separating the variables we get,
Step 2:
Integrating on both sides we get,
$\log y = \log x + \log C$
$\log y - \log x =\log C$
$\log\mid\large\frac{y}{x}\mid $$= \log C$
Or $y=Cx$
Hence the correct option is C.
