  • A linear differential equation of the form $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=F(x,y)$ where $F(x.y)$ is of the form $g(x).h(y)$ where $g(x)$ is a function of $x$ and $h(y)$ is a function of $y$,then the equation is variable separable type.Such equations can be solved by separating the variables.
Step 1:
Given :$(x-y)(dx+dy)=dx-dy$
On expanding and rearranging we get,
Step 2:
Let $(x-y)=t$ then $1-\large\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{dt}{dx}$ or $\large\frac{dy}{dx}=$$1-\large\frac{dt}{dx}$
Separating the variables
Step 3:
Integrating on both sides we get,
$\large\frac{1}{2}$$\log t+\large\frac{1}{2}$$t=t+C$
substituting for t we get,
$\large\frac{1}{2}$$\log (x-y)+\large\frac{1}{2}$$(x-y)=(x-y)+C$
$\large\frac{1}{2}$$\log (x-y)=\large\frac{(x+y)}{2}$$+C$
Step 4:
To evaluate for $C$ let us substitute the given values of $x=0$ and $y=-1$
$\log(1)=-1+k$(where $2C=k$)
This is the required solution.
