## Homework Statement

Solve each of the following initial value problems: a) f'(x)=(x

^{2}-1)/x

^{5}f(1/2)=3

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

I guess my problem with this is I'm not 100% sure what I'm being asked to do. I know I need to use integration to find the original function. Ok no prob I got -1/2x

^{-2}+1/4

^{-4}. So after that am I just supposed to plug in 3=the original function, substituting 1/2 for x? That doesn't seem right since I'm not getting 3... Am I doing the question incorrectly or have I done my integration wrong?
