Homework Help: Differential Equation

  1. Jan 25, 2004 #1
    Hey,
    I'd appreciate any help you can give with this question – I've already tried it but I don’t think my solution is correct. Any advice on where (or if) I went wrong?
    Thanks in advance

    The Question:
    Solve the differential equation:

    2x(1+y) dx/dy = 8 + x^2
    if x = 2 when y = 3

    My solution:

    The link doesnt allow me to access Still
    u have
    2x(1+y)dx/dy=8+x^2
    It requires rearrangement

    so u have
    [tex]\frac{2x}{8+x^2}dx=\frac{dy}{1+y}[/tex]
    Hope u will take it from here
