Q. Obtain the partial differential equation by eliminating the arbitrary constant from the relation u=ax+(1-a)y+b


There are two arbitrary constants here, a and b.


Differentiating u wrt x,

u/ꝺx = a

Differentiating u wrt y,

ꝺu/ꝺy = (1-a)

u/ꝺy + a = 1

Substituting for a = ꝺu/ꝺx,

u/ꝺx + ꝺu/ꝺy = 1
