Question: show that the given equation is not exact but becomes exact when multiplied by the given integrating factor.Then solve the equation.
The equation is:
The integrating factor $\mu(x,y)=\frac{1}{xy^3}$

First,verify that the initial equation is not exact:
    M(x,y) &=x^2y^3 & N(x,y) &=x+xy^2\\
    M_y &=3x^2y^2 & N_x &=1+y^2\\
$M_y \neq N_x$,the equation is not exact.
Next, multiplying $\mu$ on both sides,
    \mu x^2y^3+\mu x(1+y^2)y'=0\\
Denote $P(x,y)=x$ and $Q(x,y)=\frac{1+y^2}{y^3}$
Check exactness:
The new equation is exact.
Now solve the equation:
    \frac{\partial\psi}{\partial x}=x\\
    \frac{\partial\psi}{\partial y}=g'(y)=y^{-3}+y^{-1}\\
So the solution to the equation is
for $c$ being constant.
