Solve y’ – y*tan[x] = 2sin[x].(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I keep arriving at the answer: y = 2ln(sec[x]) / sec[x] - c/sec[x]

for this question.

According to my textbook the correct answer is: y = (c - cos[x]) * sec[x]. Can anyone explain how to obtain this answer?

Thanks :)
