Hi everyone,
I've been trying to solve the following equation:

[itex]x^2(yy''-{y'}^2)+xyy'-y\sqrt{y^2+x^2y'^2}=0[/itex]

One of the tries was to do the substitution [itex]z=xy'[/itex]. However, it doesnt seem to work...

Try starting by dividing the equation by y2, and working with z =y'/y. This will reduce it to a first order equation in z.
