Just so I have the concept of a singular solution down correctly, suppose I have an equation like:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\left(x+y\right)^2y' = 0[/tex]

This admits of two solutions:

[tex]y=-x[/tex]

and, from:

[tex]y' = 0[/tex]

[tex]y = C[/tex]

where C is a constant.

So the "two" solutions for the equation would be:

[tex]y_1=-x, y_2 = C[/tex]

In this case, y=-x would be considered the "singular" solution, correct?
