*Solve the differential equation dy/dx=x/16y. *Find the equation of the solution through the point (x,y)=(−4,1). *Find the equation of the solution through the point (x,y)=(0,−4). Your answer should be of the form y=f(x)

    I already solved the first part. C=8y^2 -(x^2/2)

    ok replace your x and y with -4 and 1 respectively to find the C so that your graph for your equation will go through that point

    so y=sqrt((x^2/16) + c) and i plugged in (-4,1) and got y=sqrt((x^2/16) is that correct?

    You have \[C=8y^2-\frac{x^2}{2}\] Replace x with -4 and y with 1 like this: \[C=8(1)^2-\frac{(-4)^2}{2}\] Is this what you did to solve for C?

    \[C=8-\frac{16}{2}=8-8=0\]

    I can't do arithmetic somethings lol But you have \[0=8y^2-\frac{x^2}{2} \]

    that is the equation satisfying the point (-4,1)

    hmm it the system doesn't seem to accept it.. it says it isn't a linear equation

    Your differential equation was: \[\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{x}{16y} \text{ \right ?} \]

    Ok solve for y make sure you keep in mind we want to go through the point (-4,1)

    ok so y=x/4

    We wanted y=-x/4 That is why I said to keep in mine we want it going through (-4,1) :)

    The equation y=x/4 doesn't satisfy the point (-4,1) but y=-x/4 does
