1. ok due to me editing the thread title but the thread list not actually updating it ive made another threrad (in fear nobody will check it)

so following up from my other question im having this problem:

I need to find the general solution of:

dy/dx = x(y^2 +1) / (x-1)y

But my final answer has a -1 in it where the back has +1 any ideas?

this is what i get,but i dont understand ur query:

3. need y in terms of x sorry..... this is where i have the problem

i get y^2 = A.(e^x)(x-1) -1 , where A is a positive constant

y=-/+ (root) k(x-1)^2 e^2x + 1

y=-/+ (root) k(x-1)^2 e^2x + 1
I get

y = -/+ sqrt( k(x-1)² . e^2x - 1

-1 not +1
7. yep thats what i thought must be error in answer, cant see how u can have the +1
8. It prob is an error

this is what i get,but i dont understand ur query:
u missed out the 1/2 I think.

(1/2)ln(y^2+1) = x + ln(x-1)

u missed out the 1/2 I think.

(1/2)ln(y^2+1) = x + ln(x-1)
oops.Well spotted.

(1/2)ln(y^2+1) = x + ln(x-1)
so that's why i was getting it wrong

i hope im not to blame there
