(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Show that the equation [tex]-\frac{x}{2}\frac{dy}{dx} = \frac{d^2y}{dx^2}[/tex]

can be written as

[tex]\frac{d}{dx}\left({\ln \frac{dy}{dx}}\right) = -\frac{x}{2}[/tex]

3. Attempt at the solution

I approached this by writing [tex]\frac{d}{dx}\left({\frac{dy}{dx}}\right) = -\frac{x}{2}[/tex]

But this isn't the required result and I can't see how to get there?

Please help!

With very many thanks,

Froskoy.
