Homework Help: Diff. Eq: Linear Eq. Method: I can't find the mistake I made

    I must have made a mistake somewhere in these steps but I don't see it. The answer I got isn't the correct one. Where did I go wrong?

    Wow I'm sorry, but that's very hard for me to read. Could you post the question itself along with any initial conditions you were given?

    Does this make sense?

    You've got the wrong sign on the P(x) you integrated. You did P(x)=2/(x*log(x)). It should be P(x)=(-2/(x*log(x))).
