# Differential equation question Watch

Announcements
1. Hi guys,Could someone help me with finding the solution to dy/dx = x + xy (You don't need to make y the subject) The answer is ln (1+y) = x^2/2 +c I can see how the answer is the above (using differentiation) but can't seem to find how to go the other way. Thanks!!
2. You can rewrite as . Do you know where to go from there?

Oh my goodness, I just saw it. I would separate the variables into
1/(1+y) . dy = x . dx

and then integrate each side to get
ln (1+y) = x^2/2 + c

Thank you for your help! By the way, how did you format the equations so it looks nicer?

Yep, well done. It's using LaTex to write the equations. There's a page on TSR showing how to write in LaTeX if you want to use it.
