How to solve the y’-x^2*y=2x^2 using Differential Equation Made Easy

There are 2 ways to solve this Differential Equation: 1) Since it is linear in y use F1 : Linear in y enter P=-x^2 and Q=2x^3 press Enter . Using an Integration factor will yield the answer. 2) Rewriting it as y’=2x^2+x^2*y=x^2*(2+y) shows that the method of separating the variables will work as well, That… (read more)
