  • Linear Differential equation.
  • This is of the form $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$+Py=Q$ where P and Q are functions of x only.
  • The integrating factor $I= e^{\int \large pfd}$ and the $G.S$ is$ ye^{\large pdx}=\int Q e^{\large pdx} dx+c$
Step 1:
Given the slope is $y+2x$
ie $\large\frac{dy}{dx}$$=y+2x$
$e^{\large \int pdx}=e^{\large \int -dx}=e^{-x}$
Step 2:
The solution is $ye^{-x}=\int e^{-x}\;2x\;dx+c$
$ye^{-x}=2[-e^{-x}x -e^{x}]+c$
Step 3:
The curve passes through $(0,0)$
Step 4:
The equation is
