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

Hi everyone, the problem I have is listed under my attempt (I hope it's ok that I pasted it): to solve the below linear differential equation with the initial condition y(1)=1

2. Relevant equations

P(x) and Q(x) linear differential equation solution method

3. The attempt at a solution

Plugging in for 1=y and 1=x to solve for c has yielded me crazy results after i plugged in y^(-2). I got both c=6/7 and c=-1/6 but neither are the correct answer (this problem is listed on a program that allows me to check my answer) can anyone help me explain if I did a step wrong or if I am solving for C wrong??

Thanks!
