Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A first-order differential equation dy/dx=f(x, y) in which the function f can be expressed as the product of a function of x and a function of y. The differential equation then has the form dy/dx=g(x)h(y), and its solution is given by the equation

where c is an arbitrary constant.
