I am practising for my test. The question is to solve a differential equation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

dy/dx + y/x + 1 = 5x

y(0) = 1.

The answer that i have come up with is

(xy+y)= 5x^3/3+5x^2/2+c

by substituting the values x=0 and y=1 in to the general equation I get

y(x+1)=5x^3/3 + 5x^2/2 +1

as the particular solution.

Can you tell me how will the particular solution look like and why this particular solution exists?
