the integral equals and in order to have convergence, we require that exists.

Sorry, that's not what I meant. Please refer to my modified post. Thanks!

Not being a conventionalist, I wouldn't know. I sometimes put it in a convoluted form to make the OP work. It's medicine for their soul.

I actually see how you got that now f'(x)=x(1-f(x)) dy/dx=x(1-y) where y=f(x) then using the initial condition f(0) = 10 I can find C thanks for the help i think i can finish the problem from here but if i get stuck i will post it.
