While going through the concept of simultaneous differential equation, I came across following problem: Find the Integral curves of: dx/(1)= dy/(3y+4z)= dz/(2y+5z) The solution says: Each of these fractions of the given system of equations is equal to: (dxdy)/(yz) and (dy+2dz)/(7(y+2z)) How each of these fractions can be equal to these fractions? Is there the use of componendodividendo concept? If yes, how we deduced that? Last edited by skipjack; April 7th, 2017 at 11:17 PM.

The original equations form three proportions. Proportions fulfill this identity:$$\frac{a}{b}=\frac{c}{d}\implies\frac{a+ c}{b+d}=\frac{a}{b}\\ad=bc\implies ab+ad=ab+bc\implies a(b+d)=b(a+c)\implies\frac{a}{b}=\frac{a+c}{b+d}$$ So, this is wrong:$${(dxdy)\over(yz)}\; \text{and}\; {(dy+2dz)\over7(y+2z)}$$Must be$${(dxdz)\over(yz)}\; \text{and}\; {(dy+2dz)\over7(y+2z)}$$and these are equal to any of the initial fractions. e.g.$${dx\over(1)}= {(dxdz)\over(yz)}$$
