    the constant was found by the initial condition, once found you put in into the general solution of the ODE.

    If the initial condition is: y=(x^3)+C/x and C=2
    how does x^3 become x^2?

    The correct answer should be y=(x^2)+2/x
    Thanks

    It must be a typo.

    y = x^3 + \frac{2}{x} is correct.
