I was having a problem trying to identify the P(x) and q(x) of this question,

(X^3)d/dx(y(x))-(4X^2)y(x)=(4x^7)

I would be really thankful if someone could help me with this!

Thanks!

Thanks alot i've just found out that i had mistaken that the y(x) is part of another equation,thanks for your help!

All right, take into account that

$\displaystyle \dfrac{d}{dx}\;(y(x)):=y'(x)$ - Mar 11th 2011, 04:38 AMAckbeet
The equation is also Cauchy-Euler.
