## Re: PDE please help!!

I agree with Prove It. The equation, as given, can be directly integrated while making the "indicated transformation" gives a much harder equation!

But if you must transform, use the fact that, for any function, F(x,y), and

So, letting , and, letting , .

The equation becomes .

As Prove It said, the original equation is much easier to solve than the transformed equation!
