The question is x^2dy/dx + y^2=0 , y(1)=3(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I re-arrange the equation to get -1/y^2dy=1/x^2dx

Seperated them, then I integrate both sides to get 1/y=-1/x + c

Now I dont get how they got the answer y=3x/(4x-3), as when I try use the condition I get a different answer, could anyone help? I might have done something wrong in the integration?
