HELP!! limit and differentials

1. i cant seem to figure this out...

if the differential equation dy/dx= y-2y^2 has a solution curve y=f(x) contianing point (o, 0.25) then the limit as x approaches infinity of f(x) is

a)no limit

b. 0

c. 0.25

d. 0.5

e. 2

he problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. dy/dx= y-2y^2

3. i think it is no limit

integrate( dy/(y-2y^2)= dx)
:surprised

it is no limit but do you need help solving the integral? also the integral of that doesn't have (0,0.25) but it has (0.25,0), is that what you meant?

no i have the integral down f(X) becomes y= 1/(e^-x + 2) +C; now the limit of f(x) without the c value is 1/2 which is an asnwer choice; but if i take the limit with c , which is -1/12 b/c the initial condition given is (0, 1/4) the limit becomes .41666667; this however is not an answer choice given...

so when taking the limit of the f(X) should i include the c value....does it matter?
