  • The linear differential equation of the form $\large\frac{dy}{dx} $$= F(x,y)$, where F(x,y) is of the form g(x).h(y), where g(x) is a function with x and h(y) is a function with y, then this type of equation is called variables seperable and the the equation can be solved seperating the variables.
Step 1:
Given :
The equation can be written as
$\large\frac{dy}{dx} = \large\frac{-e^x(1+y^2)}{(1+e^2x)}$
Using the information in the tool box, we understand that this equation is variables seperable and we can solve this by seperating the variables.
Seperating the variables we get,
$\large\frac{dy}{(1+y^2)} = \large\frac{-e^xdx}{(1+e^2x)}$
Step 2:
Integrating on both sides we get,
$\tan^{-1}y=-\int\large\frac{ e^xdx}{(1+e^{2x})}$
$\int\large\frac{ e^xdx}{(1+e^{2x})}$ can be solved by method of substitution,
Let $e^x = t$; then $dt = e^xdx$
Substituting this we get,
$\int\large\frac{dt}{(1+t^2)}$$ = \tan^{-1}t$
Substituting for t we get,
Step 3:
To evaluate the value $C$,let us substitute the given values of $x=0$ and $y=1$
Substituting this we get,
$\tan^{-1}x + \tan^{-1}y = \large\frac{\pi}{2}$
