Introduction: We have used many methods to solve differential equations of first order and of degree 1, e.g., differential equations that can be separated in different variables, exact differential equations, equations that can be reduced to homogeneous equation and those equations that become exact when we multiply them by some integrating factor. In this chapter, we will keep our discussion on the differential equations which are of first order but of higher degree. Let us take dy p dx ? , then the general form of the first order and nth degree differential equation is given by the equation 12 12 ... 0 (1) n n n n p A p A p A ?? ? ? ? ? ? where 1 A , 2 A ,..., n A are functions of x and y. It is not simple to find the solution of eqn. (1) in its general form. In this chapter we consider only that type of eqn. (1) which we can solve easily and explain the methods for solving those equations. Also we shall discuss the Clairaut equation, the singular solution of the differential equations, the envelopes and orthogonal trajectories of the family of surfaces and state and the existence and uniqueness theorem for first order ordinary differential equations in this chapter.

Equations which can be factorized: The general form of the first order and nth degree differential equation is given by, 12 12 ... 0 n n n n p A p A p A ?? ? ? ? ? ? ? where 1 A , 2 A ,..., n A are functions of the variables x and y. Now there are two possibilities: (a) If we resolve 12 12 ... n n n n p A p A p A ?? ? ? ? ? into rational factors of degree 1, then it can be written as ? ? ? ? ? ? 12 ... 0 (2) n p f p f p f ? ? ? ? where 1 f , 2 f ,..., n f are functions of the variables x and y. Since all those values of y, for which the factors in eqn. (2) become zero, will satisfy eqn. (1). Hence, to solve eqn. (1), we will have to equate each of the factors given in eqn. (2) to zero. i.e., 0, 1,2,..., (3) r p f r n ? ? ? If ? ? , , 0, 1,2,..., (4) rr F x y C r n ?? where , 1,2,..., constants. r C r n arearbitrary ? are the solutions for eqns. (3), then the general solution of eqn. (1) is given by ? ? ? ? ? ? 1 1 2 2 , , . , , ... , , 0, (5) nn F x y C F x y C F x y C ? All the constants in eqn. (5), namely, 12 , ,..., n C C C can have infinite number of values, so all these solutions given by eqn. (5), will remain general even if we take 12 ... n C C C C ? ? ? ? . Hence, the general solution is given by ? ? ? ? ? ? 12 , , . , , ... , , 0, (6) n F x y C F x y C F x y C ? (b) When the left-hand side of eqn. (1) cannot be factorized. We will take this possibility in the next section. Value Additions: Since we are dealing with the first order differential equation, the general solution should contain only one arbitrary constant. There is no loss of generality by replacing the n arbitrary constants by a single arbitrary constant. Example 1: Solve the differential equation 2 2 2 6 0, dy x p xy p y wherep dx ? ? ? ? .
