    Exact? Differential equation

    solve and Test for exactness... if not use another method
    (1-xy)^{-2}dx + (y^2+x^2(1-xy)^{-2})dy = 0



    this is not exact ... but i dont know what other method to use
    need suggestion

    The following differential equation

    M(x,y)+N(x,y)\frac{dy}{dx}=0,

    is exact iff \frac{{\partial N}}<br />
{{\partial x}} = \frac{{\partial M}}<br />
{{\partial y}}.

    Did you check if this one is exact or not? Otherwise, there're 4 methods to transform an inexact ODE into a exact one.

    yep The equation is exact when i simplify....

    i need help on something else


    its on solving the differential equation
    since
    \frac{\partial{F}}{\partial{y}} = y^2 + x^2(1-xy)^{-2}

    \frac{\partial{F}}{\partial{x}} = (1-xy)^{-2}

    now im integrating the dx component since it is the easiest to integrate:
    \int \frac{\partial{F}}{\partial{x}} = \int {(1-xy)}^{-2} = \frac{1}{(y(1-xy))} + Q(y) - since y is a constant

    ^
    now the previous part is differentated w/ respect to y and equate with \frac{\partial{F}}{\partial{y}}:

    so
    \frac{x}{y(1-xy)^2} - \frac{1}{y^2(1-xy)} +  Q'(y) = y^2 + x^2(1-xy)^{-2}
    ^
    this part is my problem... i need to make it into a function of a y variable but i cannot do it correctly
