Hey, ive got this problem... i pay attention in class and read the chapter in the book but i cant seem to know how to solve this? ANy help is greatly appreciated lads... thank you

y'tanx=a+y y(pi/3)=a 0<x<(pi/2)

What i done

(dy/dx)tanx = a + y

dytanx=(a+y)dx

dy/(a+y)=dx/tanx

integral of both sides...

ln(a+y)=-csc^2(x) ??? This isnt the answer in the back of the book, anyone can tell me where ive gone wrong? 1/tanx = cot x and the integeral of cotan is -csc^2.... oh i also assumed a was a constant, is it not? :S :( thanks guys
