for the following question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y`-Ay=-By^2

my problem:

Suppose u=y^(-1)

so u`=-y^(-2)y`=B-Au

so du/(B-Au)= dx

=> B-Au=ce^x

=> u=(B-ce^x)/A

so y=1/u=a/(B-ce^x)

however, the correct answer should be y=1/[(B/A)+ce^(-ax)]

does anybody know where my calculations went wrong?
