1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data ((1/3)(y^3))+(1/y)=.5*ln((x^2)+1) Solve in terms of y 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I am in college differential equations, and i just can't solve in terms of y. y teacher wants that...i tried wolfram alpha, etc. How on earth do you factor this in terms of y? Can you even?
