I think that I've got the general formula thing now (after you both said it many times haha) which seems way quicker than having to multiply out! Thanks guys!!!

I'm having some trouble with getting the general solutions of these differential equations! They should be pretty easy, they're at the start of the misc ex

and for -1<x<1

If someone could post a method for one of them, it would be super helpful! Thank you!
IF for the first one will be .

Remember that

If this is a 1st ODE,

Then the general solution can be written as

where is the integrating factor. (Click on the annotated video to see the proof!)

Once you've got it in the required form as in (I) (which you can do using TeeEm's hint), you should find the integrating factor and then the general solution should be a cinch to find from there!
You have come up in the world it seems. \mathrm masterrace

Takes about a year to tex dy/dx but it looks so pretty
