Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I divide by x^2 to get y' + (3/x)y=1/x^2 My integration factor though gives me x^3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1basically Put the differential equation in the correct initial form Find the integrating factor Multiply everything in the differential equation by and verify that the left side becomes the product rule and write it as such. Integrate both sides, make sure you properly deal with the constant of integration. Solve for the solution y(t).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(I tried seeing what wolfram alpha does, but they always do Integral (1/x) as ln x, but we are supposed to do it as ln x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I get \[x^3y' +\frac{3x^3}{x}=\frac{x^3}{x^2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the final step is then d/dx[x^3y]=int(x) which is simple.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1excuse me it is x^3y=int(x) which is to say d/dx[x^3y]=x^3/x^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But we hae absolute values no? Integral (1/x) = lnx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1this yields x^3y=x^2/2 then jus divide by x^3 to get y=1/2(x^1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Try reading some outside resources like http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/Classes/DE/Linear.aspx !!! I liked this site when i was a rook!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0COuld it be because if we say x>0, then the drop the absolute value, but if x <0, then you put x^3 everywhere (but since the whole equation is negative, you just "divide by 1" o_o?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1otherwise though this solution looks correct..any problems you see?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No I was mainly concerned about the absolute value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ignore the absolute value.
