I havn't seen an example of this type of problem. It has another variabler in the equation, i tried to divide by it, but its still in there. Here is the problem:

Find y as a function of x if

y = ?

So i divided by x^2 and got:

y''+2y'/x -30y/x^2 = x;

This kind of looks like an integrating factor problem but not. ANy suggestions or can someone explain to me whats going on? Thanks!
