^{2}θ(dy/dx) = (dy/dθ) × (dθ/dx)

(dy/dx) = (b sec

^{2}θ)/(a secθ.tanθ)(dy/dx) = (b/a).cosecθ

Again differentiating both sides w.r.t x,

^{2}y/dx^{2}) = -(b/a).(-cosec^{2}θ).(dθ/dx)(d

^{2}y/dx^{2}) = (b/a).(cosec^{2}θ).(1/-a sinθ)(d

^{2}y/dx^{2}) = (b/a).(cosec^{2}θ).(1/-a sinθ)d

^{2}y/dx^{2 }= -(b/a^{2}).(1/sin^{3}θ)d

^{2})y_{2 }– a^{2}p – xy_{1 }= 0Hence Proved

### Question 25. If logy = tan^{-1}x, show that (1 + x^{2})y_{2 }+ (2x – 1)y_{1 }= 0.

**Solution:**

We have,

logy = tan

^{-1}xOn differentiating both sides w.r.t θ,

(1/y)y

_{1 }= 1/(1 + x^{2})(1 + x

^{2})y_{1 }= yAgain differentiating both sides w.r.t x,

2xy

_{1 }+ (1 + x^{2})y_{2 }= y_{1}(1 + x

^{2})y_{2 }+ (2x – 1)y_{1 }= 0Hence Proved

### Question 26. If y = tan^{-1}x, show that (1 + x^{2})(d^{2}y/dx^{2}) + 2x(dy/dx) = 0.

**Solution:**

We have,

y = tan

^{-1}xOn differentiating both sides w.r.t x,

(dy/dx) = 1/(1 + x

^{2})Again differentiating both sides w.r.t x,

d

^{2}y/dx^{2 }= [-1/(1 + x^{2})^{2}] × (2x)d

^{2}y/dx^{2 }= [-2x/(1 + x^{2})^{2}](1 + x

^{2})(d^{2}y/dx^{2}) = -2x/(1 + x^{2})(1 + x

^{2})(d^{2}y/dx^{2}) = -2x(dy/dx)(1 + x

^{2})(d^{2}y/dx^{2}) + 2x(dy/dx) = 0Hence Proved
