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

1. ## 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?

2. Try separation of variables.

3. D'OH!

Thank you kindly.
