find a general solution to the differential equation

(2+x) dy/dx = 3y

i got the answer y= 6+3x+e^(3c)

but i don't think that makes much sense..

okay thats what i got but i didn't know how to solve for y. i know you have to inject e to cancel out ln

so would it be y= 3(2+x) + e^(3c)

im not sure - Jan 5th 2009, 12:31 PMJester
