1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Solve the I.V.P. x2(dy/dx) = (4x2-x-2)/((x+1)(y+1)) , y(1)=1 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution So far, I got to this: y2/2 + y = log(x) + 2/x + 3log(x+1) + C I used the initial conditions to solve for C and got: C = -1/2 - 3log(2) Substituting C back in: y2/2 + y = log(x) + 2/x + 3log(x+1) + (-1/2 - 3log(2)) Now my question is, is it possible to solve for y or is this as far as I can go with the problem?
