thanks for the reply

just one more question.

how do you know which variable to use??

for instance, how do you choose the 'change of variable'? - Jun 11th 2008, 11:08 AMCaptainBlack

using http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...1ef959be-1.gif

i got

(y'x^2 - yxalpha)x^-alpha + yxx^-alpha - (2alphaxy)x^-alpha + beta^2.gemma^2.x^2gamma + alpha^2 -n^2.gemma^2)y = 0

is this right???? and i wasnt sure how to use x'=beta.x^gemma from here. - Jun 14th 2008, 10:35 AMCaptainBlack
