## Help with this DE problem

Hi

I got a problem in DE too

I checked all the possible methods that I've learned so far includes Linear, Homogeneous,Bernoulli, and exact equation however none of them worked for me

Please give me just a little hint on this.

Thank you

Im not sure what you're asking

an you give me a little explain? ,why is it not negative?

I found the SOLN , and plug back to orginal problem, with both case c=+-2

,looks like both satify the problem.....

I dont really understand...

And what about uniqueness ... ???? I though they said IVP is unique soln, but... I found 2 C's....

## general solution

Hi, i read over this post i think i know how to find a "general solution" for this probelm. Its actually a specific case for this problem, but it'll help you find an integrating factor in the form . where "a" and "b" are constants.

Get equation in exact form:

Make this fraction =1

By making "a" and "b" appropriot values this should make the fraction 1. Thereby giving you the values of "a" and "b"to fill in the integrating factor .

This should make the equation turn into an "exact differential equation"

Hope this helps!

*Note: I havent tried this for your specific problem, but this is the solution my professor has taught us and has worked for me on other problems.
