Find the differential equation of family of straight lines $y=mx+\large\frac{a}{m}$ When $a , m, $ both are parameters.

1 Answer

  • If we have an equation $f(x,y,c_1,c_2,....c_n)=u$ Containing n arbitrary constant $c_1,c_2...c_n$, then by differentiating n times, we get $(n+1)$ equations in total. If we eliminate the arbitrary constants $c_1,c_2....c_n,$ we get a D.E of order n
$y=mx+\large\frac{a}{m}$----(i) where a,m are parameters
It is the required D. E
