I can't find an easy way to use the integrating factor to solve this question, any ideas?

The i.f is obviously exp{(x^4)/4} but I don't know where to go from there. thanks

Hello, i_zz_y_ill!

If you found the integrating factor,

. . the next few steps are part of the procedure.

Exactlyis your difficulty?*where*

Multiply by the I.F. .

We have: .

Integrate: .

Therefore: .
