Hi Guys,

I've got a couple of examples of de's in my lecture notes. one is:

[itex]y'=1+x^2[/itex]

which has a general solution of [itex]y= x+\frac{x^3}{3} + c[/itex]

which i I understand they have taken the integral wrt [itex]x[/itex]

the second is

[itex]y'=1+y^2[/itex] which has a general solution of [itex]y= [/itex]tan[itex](x+c)[/itex]

Can some one please explain to me how that got the second solution?
