It's a separable ODE.

Try it. - Jul 11th 2007, 08:11 AMemily28
ive been trying it for nearly an hour, but can only get to the stage of

yy'/2y+3=1/x

because i havent dont much of these type of maths. where should i go now?!:( - Jul 11th 2007, 08:16 AMtopsquark

The RHS is

how did you get the last part with 1-3/y+3? - Jul 11th 2007, 08:22 AMKrizalid

oh right, this is slightly embarrasing becuase you are all so good at maths, but i still not sure where to go next. i should work on the LHS right?

Show your progress :D:D

well i know the intergral of 1/x is |ln|x+c so thats the right side sorted:) so im making progress!! (not much but hey its better than nothing right?:rolleyes:

as for the LHS Is there any substitution you can think of that will make

look similar to the x integral?

i dont understand what you mean? - Jul 11th 2007, 08:48 AMKrizalid

Girl, it's quite dangerous getting in ODE if you don't remember how to integrate. - Jul 11th 2007, 08:56 AMemily28

i understand how to do this, this is simple intergration but dont understand how to relate it to 1/2 intergral (1-3/(y+3) dy - Jul 11th 2007, 09:00 AMKrizalid

sorry intergration has never been my strong point! hence all the questions :P

so if i put it all together i get

1/2 (y-3ln|y+3|)=ln|x|+c

so (y-3ln|y+3|)=2ln|x|+2c is my final answer? - Jul 20th 2007, 08:00 AMKrizalid
