Step 1

1 of 4Note that the standard form of a first order differential equation is

$\frac{dy}{dx}+a(x)y=b(x).$

We can rewrite the differential equation in standard form.

$\begin{aligned}2\frac{dy}{dx}-y&=xe^{x/2}\\ \frac{dy}{dx}-\dfrac{y}{2}&=\dfrac{x}{2}e^{x/2}.&&\textcolor{#4257b2}{\text{(Divide both sides by $2$)}}\\ \end{aligned}$

where $a(x)=-\frac{1}{2},b(x)=\frac{x}{2}e^{x/2}$.
