Is ( 2 x + y ) d x x d y = 0 a separable differential equation?
I was given the following differential equation in an assignment the other day:
( 2 x + y ) d x x d y = 0
The problem specified to solve the equation using the method of separation of variables. My problem was setting the integral, I tried multiple manipulations with but nothing seemed to work. So, I have to ask can this equation be solved using separation of variables?

Write it as
y y / x = 2
then use the change of variables
y = x u y = x u + u to transformed it to the separable ode
x u = 2
which is the required method in the question!

The equation can be rewritten as
d y d x 1 x y = 2
That means it is not a separable equation. However, it is a first-order linear ordinary differential equation, so it can be solve by the usual means. You will end up with at least one "special function" however, since part of the solution needs e 1 / x d x which cannot be expressed in elementary functions.

Separable Differential Equation dy/dt = 6y
The question is as follows:
d y d t = 6 y
y ( 9 ) = 5
I tried rearranging the equation to d y 6 y = d t and integrating both sides to get ( 1 / 6 ) ln | y | + C = t. After that I tried plugging in the 9 for y and 5 for t and solving but I can't quite seem to get it.

Completing partial derivatives to make them converge
For a function f ( x , y ) of two independent variables we have an incomplete specification of its partial derivatives as follows:
f ( x , y ) x = 1 g ( x , y ) 1 ( k y x ( 1 / 3 ) ) 2
f ( x , y ) y = ( 3 x 4 ) ( k x ( 1 / 3 ) ) 2 ( 2 y ) 1 g ( x , y ) 1 ( k y x ( 1 / 3 ) ) 2
Problem: finding a suitable g ( x , y ) that makes the partial derivatives converge to a single function f ( x , y ) that fulfills the condition f ( x , 0 ) = x
I will be grateful if people with many flight hours can offer suggestions for g ( x , y ). Needless to say, I am not asking that they verify those suggestions, but in case someone would like, these are the inputs to Wolfram integrator:
1 ( g ( x , y  as  r ) 1 ( k r / x ( 1 / 3 ) ) 2 ) ( 3 t / 4 ) ( k / t 1 / 3 ) 2 ( 2 x ) ( g ( x  as  t , y  as  x ) 1 ( k x / t ( 1 / 3 ) ) 2 )

What are the orthogonal trajectories of the given family of curves: ( x a ) 2 + y 2 = a 2
Take the derivative:
2 ( x a ) + 2 y y = 0
x a + y y = 0
a can be isolated from the original equation
x 2 2 a x + a 2 + y 2 = a 2 x 2 2 a x + y 2 = 0
Yielding the following differential equation:
x x 2 + y 2 2 x + y y = 0
This is suppose to be a separable differential equation yielding x 2 + ( y C ) 2 = C 2 . I can't seem to come this conclusion. Could someone help?

Differential equation with separable, probably wrong answer in book
I have a differential equation:
d y d x = y log ( y ) cot ( x )
I'm trying solve that equation by separating variables and dividing by y log ( y )
d y = y log ( y ) cot ( x ) d x
d y y log ( y ) = cot ( x ) d x
cot ( x ) d y y log ( y ) = 0
Where of course y>0 regarding to division
Beacuse:
d y y log ( y ) = ln | ln ( y ) | + C
and:
cot ( x ) d x = ln | sin ( x ) | + C
So:
ln | sin ( x ) | ln | ln ( y ) | = C
ln | sin ( x ) ln ( y ) | = C
sin ( x ) ln ( y ) = ± e C
d = ± e C
sin ( x ) = d ln ( y )
sin ( x ) d = ln ( y )
e sin ( x ) d = y
This is my final answer. I have problem because in book from equation comes the answer to exercise is:
y = e c sin ( x )
Which one is correct?
I will be grateful for explaining Best regards

What are the steps to solve this calculus problem?
3 ) x y cos y + sin y = 0
I understand that y' is the first derivative, but I'm not really sure how to apply it. Would I move everything to the other side, convert y' to dy/dx and use trig applications to sin/cos? I only took business calculus and have no idea how to solve this.
It would be extremely nice if somebody showed all the steps to solve this.

Solving separable differential equations via partial fractions: d y d x = y ( y 1 )
I got
d y y ( y 1 ) = d x ln | y 1 | ln | y | = x + c
ln | y 1 y | = x + c
1 1 y = C e x
y = 1 1 C e x

Transformation of a differential equation into variables u &x
Suppose we have M d x + N d y = 0 We want to transform it into variable u&x such that x = u y
My attempt is below!
d y d x = g ( 1 / u )
d y d x = u x d u d x u 2
After getting the new separable differential equation use it to solve
( x 2 3 y 2 ) d x + 2 x y d y = 0
