Linear Equation of Order One


An equation that is linear and of order one on the dependent variable y must be in a form: + = ()
Dividing by A(x)

+ = ()

Solving Linear Equations


Put Equation in the form: + = ()
Determine Integrating Factor v by: =

Solve resultant EXACT EQUATION

Multiply v to both sides of the equation

Complications persist!
If complicated equations arise, it may be possible by some change of variables to transform the equation into a type we know how to solve!
