    ode differiential equation

    Could someone solve these:
    xyy'+y^2=sinx by letting y^2=v
    y'=2/(x+2y-3) by letting x+2y-3=v
    2y'y''=1+(y')^2 by letting y'=v
    or explain one and if they are similar then i'd be fine?

    Hint:

    Multiply both sides of the equation by 2x

    2x^2yy'+2xy^2=2x\sin{x}

    (x^2y^2)'=2x\sin{x}

    x^2y^2=2\int{x\sin{x}\,dx}

    Hint:

    2y'y''=1+(y')^2

    \dfrac{2y'y''}{1+(y')^2}=1

    \Bigl(\ln(1+(y')^2)\Bigl)'=1

    \ln(1+(y')^2)=x+C

    1+(y')^2=e^{x+C}=C_1e^x

    (y')^2=C_1e^x-1

    y'=\pm\sqrt{C_1e^x-1}

    y=\pm\int\!\sqrt{C_1e^x-1}\,dx

    I actually forgot to write the substitute for it... sorry... it's y^2=v

    how did you get from... \dfrac{2y'y''}{1+(y')^2}=1 to \Bigl(\ln(1+(y')^2)\Bigl)'=1

    If you let y' = v then y'' = v' and you get

    2v \dfrac{dv}{dx} = 1 + v^2 (separable).
