Hi, I need to solve this differential equation but I don't have a clue where to start
yy' = -x + (x^2+y^2)^1/2
Any advice at all would be appreciated. Thanks.

Looks like a classic case of having to transform to polar co-ordinates. Can you do that?

a substitution y=xv might work (where v is a function of x).
