Find values of the constants a and k so that y(x) = ax^k solves the differential equation;(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(dy/dx)^2 + [(3y^2)/(x^2)] + [(2y)/(x^4)]

I tried substituiting ax^k into the DE but it did not work. I need to separate x and y but I cannot do it then I need to integrate it I think. I just don't know how to go about this question.

HELP!!!!
