Try to rearrange and find an integrating factor u such that

u(x^2 -1)y' + u(2xy - x)

is and exact differential

So I have to rewrite the equation in the standard form y' + Py =Q

IF = e ^ ∫P.dx

where P = 2x ???

Thanks....I solved it my solution is

y(x^2 -1)=(x^2)/2

y(x^2 -1)=(x^2)/2

Good, but you need the arbitrary constant

y(x^2 -1)=(x^2)/2+C

y(x^2 -1)=(x^2)/2+C

(x^2-1)y = \int{x};-->

(x^2-1)y = 0.5 x^2 + C

y = (0.5 x^2 + C) / ( x^2 - 1 )
