As three times the difference of the number and 9 is −3,
the difference of the number and 9 is - 3 3 = - 1
As the difference of the number and 9 is - 3 3 = - 1 ,
this means the number is less than 9 by one
Hence number is 9−1=8

I want to solve the differential equation y y 2 = y + x y . I notice that the differential is not in the general form of first order linear equations which is y + P ( x ) y = Q ( x ). In fact the above equation is not linear.
I read that I have to switch the dependent and independent variable of the problem and then the problem will turn into linear first order differential equation. I don't quite understand the concept of switching dependent and independent variable, can someone explain?
