# First order differential equation Watch

1. I need to solve:

Ln(y^x). dy/dx = 3x^2 . y
Rearrange to get

X.lny (dy) = 3x^2 (dx)
Int (X.lny (dy)) = Int (3x^2 (dx))

To get

(lny)^2/2 = 3x^2/2 + C

According to my mark scheme I should get C/2
But I don't know why?
2. - try integrating by parts (where u = ln y, and dv/dy = 1)

Also, I don't see where your y from the first line has gone.
And if you're finding c, then you'll have been given x and y values which you haven't stated in your post.

Edit: And ignore the first two parts as they have been corrected below - next time try and keep the y in your working throughout, but equally (if not more so) it's my bad for not trying with it first ).

....
To integrate ln(y)/y use substitution:

let u= lny

du/dy = 1/y

du= dy/y

-> I u du = u^2/2= (lny)^2/2.

Wolfram says no constant/2.

Not quite sure where that constant/2 has come from, I certainly don't get that either.

Wrong.

OP is correct, if I'm interpreting correctly.

8. That was to strikethrough the text!

(Yes, this is very constructive maths help)
