Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Once again I am having trouble verifying my answer.

Here is the question:

Solve the given first-order linear equation and verify that your solution indeed satisfies the equation:

dy/dx = y/x + 1/x^2, x>0

Now I get an answer of

y = -1/2 * 1/x + xC

But when I sub. back in the the equation

dy/dx = y/x + 1/x^2

It doesn't verify. I keep on trying it over and over again, but I keep on getting the same thing. What am I doing wrong?

Any help is appreciated. Thankyou.
