Thread: (x^2)(y+1)dx + (y^2)(x-1)dy = 0

1. (x^2)(y+1)dx + (y^2)(x-1)dy = 0

can someone check thru the working ? I couldn't figure out which part i did wrongly .

2. Re: (x^2)(y+1)dx + (y^2)(x-1)dy = 0

Two minus signs dropped when you rationalise the fractions in line three.

i still cant find the mistake ? what is the correct one ?

well , i have redo the question , yet i still cant get (x+1)^2 and (y-1)^2 .......

You just need to add 2 two both sides. Then the right hand side $c+2 = c_1$ is still an arbitrary constant.

why the author wanna do so ?

So it looks nicer. Or perhaps he integrated $\displaystyle (x-1)$ as a single term. You could even do substitutions before you start.

can you explain further?
