I know how to do problems like y' + y = 0 where you can replace y' and y with a series in sigma notation, manipulate and compare coefficients.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But how do you solve a differential by power series that does not also include y or a higher order derivative? For example, y' = -(x^2) + 2/x + 3. What power series techniques can be employed here?

Any help would be appreciated!
