    Variable Coeff: y' - (x^2)y = 0

    We started a section on variable coefficients and covered Cauchy-Euler equations, variation of parameters and reduction to constant coefficients... but so far every one of these problems is similar in that the degree of each x coefficient equals the order of the corresponding derivative.

    Now I am asked to solve y'-x^2y=0 and I am stuck. How can I solve this or start to solve this?
