1. [In Chapter II. Art. 9, two methods are given for solving the differential equation

(ax + by + c) dx + (a'x + b'y + c) dy=0.] But there exists another transformation by which the equation may be reduced to, (because it may be constructed from), an equation in which the variables are separated. Assume as this equation

(Ay' + C) dac' + (A'ac' + C') dy' = 0...... (1) and let ac' = x + my, y'= 2 + m y.

x It will be seen that in these equations united we have as many constants as in the original equation. Now on substituting in the assumed equation the values of x' and y', and comparing with the equation given, we deduce a system of relations equivalent to the following, viz.: The quantities my, m, are roots of the quadratic

am - (b + a') m + b = 0. The quantities A, A', C, C" are determined by the system of equations

A+A'= a, C +C"=c,
Am, + A'm, = d', Cm, + C'm, = c',
