We are going to find `(dx)/(dy) = x + e^y` rewritiing as
`(dx)/(dy) - x = e^y`
This is a linear ode class 1. We find `f(y)=-1` , `int f(y) dy = -y`
So we multiply both sides by `e^(-y)` and we get
`e^(-y)(dx)/(dy) - e^(-y)x = 1`
Now `(d)/(dy)xe^(-y) = e^(-y)(dx)/(dy)-e^(-y)x` which is the left side of our equation. so
`(d(xe^(-y)))/(dy) = 1`
Integrating both sides with respect to y gives us
`xe^(-y) = y + C`
Solving for `x = e^y(y+C)` we get our solution.
We can see this is a solution because
`(dx)/(dy)=e^(y)(y+C)+e^y=x+e^y` which, multiplying both sides by dy and subtracting dx from both sides is what we started with.
