Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{dy}{dx} = \frac{\sec^2 y}{1 + x^2}\] divide both sides by sec^2 y \[\implies \frac{dy}{\sec^2 y dx} = \frac{1}{1+x^2}\] now multiply both sides by dx \[\implies \frac{dy}{\sec^2 y} = \frac{dx}{1+x^2}\] now you can integrate both sides \[\implies \int \frac{dy}{\sec^2 y} = \int \frac{dx}{1+x^2}\] does that help?
