problem: xy'' -x(y')^2 = y'(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

what i have so far:

u=y' and du/dx=y''

du/dx - u^2 = (1/x)u

int[(1/u)-u]du = int[1/x]dx

ln u - (1/2)u^2 = ln x +c

ok, now is what ive done so far correct? what do i do next?

ps: i'd like to say hi to everyon :) im new here
