Differential Equation

Ok, so I really need help with this one;

I need to show that y=x * lnx is a solution to the differentialequation y'-(y/x)-1=0

Any help would be really appreciated!

Re: Differential Equation















Integrating both sides,

logy=log(x-1).

Thats what I get smile


Character is who you are when no one is looking.

I'm rather unfamiliar with these concepts. (Beginner) What does dx stand for?

Re: Differential Equation

And how did you integrate the sides? Is there a formula for this? For future reference.

Re: Differential Equation

What about

y=xlnx
y'=lnx+1

y'-y/x-1 -> lnx+1-xlnx/x-1 =lnx+1-lnx-1=0?
