1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data find the general solution of the given DE dy/dx+(1/x)y=1/x^2 2. Relevant equations integrating factor (e^(∫P(x)dx)=e^(lnx) 3. The attempt at a solution so i put my integrating factor into the equation, and get: e^(lnx)(dy/dx)+(e^(lnx)/x)y=e^(lnx)/x^2 and can't progress any further. of course, I can integrate the left side of the equation, which leaves me with e^(lnx)y, but the right side is really throwing me for a loop. are there any suggestions out there?
