Homework Help: Trouble with this differential equation

  1. Jun 4, 2010 #1
    Hi!
    can you help me to solve this differential equation?

    [tex]

    (x+1)f^{\prime}(x)-xf(x)+c=0

    [/tex]

    c is a constant

    Rewrite the equation as y' - x/(x + 1) = -c/(x + 1) and find an integrating factor. Your text should have some examples of this technique.

    BTW, this is NOT a precalculus question.
