Find an integrating factor and solve the given equation.
$$(3x^2y + 2xy + y^3) + (x^2 + y^2)y' = 0.$$

Since the equation is not exact, we need to find a function µ(x, y), such that

µ(3x2y + 2xy + y3) + µ(x2 + y2)y’ = 0 is exact.

M = µ(3x2y + 2xy + y3)      N = µ(x2 + y2)

Then  My  = µy’(3x2y + 2xy + y3) + µ(3x2 + 2x + 3y2)
Nx = µx’(x2 + y2) + µ(2x)

Let My = Nx , we get µy’(3x2y + 2xy + y3) + µ(3x2 + 3y2) = µx’(x2 + y2)

First suppose µ is a function of x only.

Then µy’ = 0, we get
µ(3x2 + 3y2) = µx’(x2 + y2)
3µ = ∂µ/∂x

By separable equation,
∫(1/µ) ∂µ = ∫3 ∂x
ln(µ) = 3x
µ = e3x (the integration factor)

By theorem, there exist ϕ(x,y) , such that , ϕx = M, ϕy = N

ϕ = ∫e3x(3x2y + 2xy + y3) = e3xx2y + (e3xy3)/3 + h(y)
ϕy = e3xx2 + h'(y) = e3xx2 + e3xy2
Thus, h'(y) = e3xy2, h(y) = (e3xy3)/3 + C

Therefore, the general solution is ϕ = e3xx2y + (e3xy3)/3 = C

You need to learn $\LaTeX$ to avoid a shappy html math
