I have a question set that goes like this:
Solve the following equations by regarding y as the independent variable rather than x
and an example of one of the questions is:
(1-4xy^2)dy/dx = y^3.
Now, how do you swap the dependent/independent variables?
Is the differential equation the same as
(1-4xy^2) = y^3(dx/dy)? Mr F says: Yes.
i.e., is dy/dx*dx/dy = 1?
Thanks.
