    differencial equation

    ive got solve the differential equation

    xyy' - 2(y+3)=0

    so i get







    The RHS is


    then i end up with


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

    which could go to

     e^{y} = x^{2} + (y+3)^{3} + e^{c}

    is this right, or have i re arranged it wrong at the end, and is this the best way to put the final answer?

    Hello, James!

    You did great . . . until the last step.


    then i end up with: . \frac{1}{2}\left(y - 3\ln|y+3|\right) \:=\:\ln|x| + c . . . . Right!

    which could go to: .  e^y \:= \:x^2 + (y+3)^3 + e^c . . . . no

    We have: . \frac{1}{2}\left(y - 3\ln|y+3|\right) \;=\;\ln|x| + C_1

    Multiply by 2: . y - 3\ln|y+3| \;=\;2\ln x + C_2

    Then: . y \;=\;2\ln x + 3\ln|y+3| + \ln(C)

    . . . . . y \;=\;\ln(x^2) + \ln(y+3)^3 + \ln(C)

    . . . . . y \;=\;\ln\left[Cx^2(y+3)^3\right]


    Thus:. e^y \;=\;Cx^2(y+3)^3

    This should be
    e^y = Cx^2|y + 3|^3
    should it not?
