I'm having trouble solving this differential equation:
(2x^2)yy' = −1 I'm just really not sure how to go about solving this.

Why isn't it separable?
[tex]2x^2 y \frac{dy}{dx} = 1 \Rightarrow 2y dy = \frac{dx}{x^2}[/tex]

Ah yes, that's actually quite easy, I'm just being dense.
Thanks for the help. SuperNomad
