Gday,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Just trying to work out the following linear differential equation. I'm trying to work it out via the Integrating Factor method and I am getting stuck at the point where you multiply both sides by I(x).

The equation is:

xy' - 2y = x^{2}

Can anyone help me out with this?

Regards,

Matt

PS. Also, how do I type equations, etc in the math font?
