## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi,

I have the equation

y' = y^2 + x^2 and am asked to linearise the equation with the appropriate substitution and then solve the resulting 2nd order linear equation.

My issue is I am unsure what to substitute in for y. I can't seem to find a choice for y which the differential will be a higher order so that I can make the aux equation to solve for some value c.
