I guess I can't write this as:

dyx^2=x^2dx/(1+x^2)

dy=dx/(1+x^2)

beacuse I don't get the right answer...

So what do I do?

we have only learned to solv the types:

dy/dx=f(x)g(y)

what is direct integration?

Thanks

[tex]\int_{x_0}^{x} \frac {d}{dx'}\left(x'^2 y\right) dx' = \int_{x_0}^{x} \frac {x'^2}{1+x'^2} dx'[/tex]

Then I don't think we have learned about direct integration...

[tex] \int du = u +\mathcal{C} [/tex]

You must understand what i've written, else why attempt to solve diff. eqns. ?

okey, I understand what you just wrote :P

but I still don't know how to solve my problem...

Tide's point was just that you need to divide both sides by x

"Direct integration" just meant regular integration!

[tex]y= \int dy= \int \frac{dx}{1+ x^2}[/itex]

When I solve what you posted I get y=tan^-1(x) but the answer is supposed to be:

(pi/4)(1/x^2)-(1/x)-tan^-1(x)/x^2

(the pi/4 comes from the start value...)

Oops! Sorry about that. I misread the original equation!sony said:

It's not that the yx

Given

[tex]x^2y= \int d(x^2y)= \int \frac{x^2dx}{x^2+ 1}[/tex].

That right hand side is a little more complicated. First divide it out:

[tex]\frac{x^2}{x^2+1}= 1- \frac{1}{x^2+1}[/itex]

and it becomes easy to integrate.

Bah, sorry. I don't see what the integral of "dx^2y" evaluates to :(

Fundamental Theorem of Calculus!
