    oh, its easily variable separable, dy/ (y-2) =dx did you try integrating this ?

    no...i got confused if i need to subtract it or what

    no subtract. dy/ (y-2) =dx got this ? can you integrate ?

    yes, now do you need to isolate 'y' also ? if not, thats your answer.

    then use log properties.

    lets say we getta find c at x=1, y=1 how?

    you are making this up ? general solution means we need 'c' nevertheless, y can't be 1 here.

    y must be >=2 so that log term is defined...

    do we need to find 'c'? and yes, if x=y=1, then c is complex number...

    integrating gives ln (y - 2) = x + c so y - 2 = e^(x + c) = e^x * e*c = Ae^x y = Ae^x + 2

    you didn't get this ? : ln (y - 2) = x + c so y - 2 = e^(x + c) = e^x * e*c = Ae^x y = Ae^x + 2 what you have doubt with ?

    just plug in x=1, y=1 there,and you'll get A

    so, put x=0 y=1 this should not be any problem...

    no, put e^c = A you can keep the general form in A and A=-2 is valid.

    you have to find a constant, not specifically 'c' A can be used, as valid constant.
