I've got a few 1st order ODEs which I have problems solving. I am new to the subject and self-taught so I may have a little difficulty absorbing. The question is.......(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. [tex] \frac {dy}{dx} = \frac {y^3}{x^2} [/tex]

for 1. I put it in the form,

[tex] x^2 dy = y^3 dx [/tex]

[tex] \frac {dy}{y^3} = \frac {dx}{x^2} [/tex]

But I get stuck when i integrate both sides. I have not integrated dy/ y^n functions before.
