# Differential equation (help)

Hi

can someone help with the DE

dy^2/dx=62y-.2

Are you sure it doesn't read (dy/dx)^2 = 62y - 0.2 ?

Is this what you meant? $$\frac{ d\left(y^2\right) }{dx} = 62y -0.2$$. If so just write z in place of $y^2$ so $$\frac{dz}{dx} = 62\sqrt{z} -0.2$$, and separate variables as usual.
Ok, have you learned how to deal with differential equations of the form $$y'' + ay' + by = c$$ where a,b,c are constants. Because thats what this problem is. If not, I suggest you read through that section in your textbook or notes again. If you do know the theory for diff. eqns of that form, what specifically got you stuck?
