# [SOLVED]2.2.2 y'=(x^2)/y(1+x^3) Separable Equations

use Separable Equations to solve

$$y'= \frac{x^2}{y(1+x^3)}$$
Multiply both sides by the denominator
$$y(1+x^3)y'=x^2$$
Subtract $x^2$ from both sides
$$-x^2 +y(1+x^3)y'=0$$

ok was trying to follow an example but ???

We are given:

$$\displaystyle y'=\frac{x^2}{y(1+x^3)}$$

I would separate the variables:

$$\displaystyle y\,dy=\frac{x^2}{x^3+1}\,dx$$

Now integrate...

use Separable Equations to solve

\begin{align*}\displaystyle
y'&= \frac{x^2}{y(1+x^3)}\\
yy'&=\frac{x^2}{(1+x^3)}\\
\int y \, dy&=\int \frac{x^2}{(1+x^3)} \, dx\\
\frac{y^2}{2}&=\frac{ \ln(x^3 + 1)}{3} + c\\
3y^2−2\ln|1+x^3|&=c\\
x&\ne−1, \\
y&\ne 0
\end{align*}

kinda winged it....

You do need to make up your mind about the absolute value. Yes, in this case.

Please don't edit you post after someone has replied based on that post. I have reverted the OP so my subsequent post makes sense, but now the attachment is bad.
