Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\large \int\limits\limits x dx=\int\limits\limits t e^t\; dt\] Yup looks good so far. By Parts on the right side :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }+c=e^0(01)\] c=\[\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so now i have \[\frac{ x^2 }{ 2 }\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }=e^t(t1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now the hard part for me is solving for x because the answer wants it in x= soooo what can i do to the 3/2? would that be added to the 1? so the right side would be e^t(t+1/2)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ x^2 }{ 2 }=e^t(t1)+\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Multiply both sides by 2\[\large x^23=2e^t(t1)\]Add 3 to both sides,\[\large x^2=2e^t(t1)+3\]Square root,\[\large x=\pm \sqrt{2e^t(t1)+3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's probably the route I would take. Get rid of the ugly fraction first :D

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohhhh my that is what i was going to ask next. but multiplying by two is probaly the rout my prof would have taken. Thank you @zepdrix !
