    If you multiply by \cos x the equation becomes exact.

    IF your ODE M dx + N dy = 0 is not exact ie. M_y = N_x then one looks for an integrating factor \mu such that

    \left(\mu M\right)_y = \left( \mu N \right)_x

    If \mu = \mu(x) only then

    \frac{\mu_x}{\mu} = \frac{M_y-N_x}{N} which in your case it is (very fortunate)!
