yes sir i did it

but the problem is the absulet number (( 2 )) << without it , it became easy

thank you sir for your help

I begin with

and I start with y1=2 and with y1=2x >>> but both gives more complicate Eq.

thank you sir for your help

$w^{'}=1-x^{2} + w^{2}$ (2)

The (2) is also a 'Riccati Equation' but, very important detail, we can verify that $w_{1}=x$ is solution of (2) and that allows You to find the general solution as follows. Setting $w=w_{1}+u=x+u$ the (2) becomes...

$u^{'}=2 u x + u^{2}$ (3)

... which is a 'Bernoulli Equation', the solution of which is left to You...
