i end up with where y' becomes 1, and i get another function........

the listed answer should be

yea... i tried that method as well... and i get stuck here:

If we sub y' = 1, how is it possible to solve/isolate x with algebra O_O

edit: nvm, your solution was epic.

nicely done. thanks. - June 10th 2009, 01:26 PMAmer
