(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); [SOLVED] Solving differential equations

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the solution:

dy/dx = (1+y^2)/(1+x^2)

hint: there is a formula tan(a + b) that will simplify your answer.

y(0)=1

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I seperated the variables and integrated ending up with

arctan(y)=arctan(x)+c

I do not see how to take this to the answer below. I understand how to use the formula they gave me in the hint but I do not see how it applies here...

the answer is

y=(1+x)/(1-x) this problem is from my exam review we have the solutions but not how to get them...
