I get the form d/dx(y/x^2)=(x^12)
Integrating both sides I get: (y/x^2)=((x^13)/13)+C(x^2)
Now I tried using the condition y(1)=-2 to get the value of C. However, every time I get the value of C to be 1, unfortunately this is not the right answer.
Where am I going wrong, any help would be highly appreciated.
Thanks!
