(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Solve xy' + 2y = sqrt(1 + x^2)

2. Relevant equations

I got an integrating factor of [itex]x^2[/itex]

So [tex]y = 1/x^2 \int{x\sqrt{1 + x^2}}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

and I get [tex]y =\frac{(1 + x^2)^{3/2}}{3x^2}[/tex] for C = 0

But this wrong when I substitute it in ... what'd I do wrong?
