Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The way we were tough is to separate the variables and then integrate each side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Multiply both sides by \(1+\sqrt{x}\). Integrate with respect to \(t\).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is very clearly a separable firstorder ordinary differential equation. We can easily separate as follows: $$\frac{dx}{dt}=\frac{1+\sqrt{t}}{1+\sqrt{x}}\\(1+\sqrt{x})\ dx=(1+\sqrt{t})\ dt$$Now, it should be clear that we integrate both sides.$$\int(1+\sqrt{x})\ dx=\int(1+\sqrt{t})\ dt\\x+\frac23x^\frac32=t+\frac23t^\frac32+C$$ This yields an implicit solution; for an explicit one, you'll need to isolate \(x\)... it won't be pretty.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@oldrin.bataku thanks for the reply, that is the same thing I did, but I couldn't figure out how to get an explicit solution. I suppose I will leave it at this. Thank you
