sqrt(y)=arctan(x),

that means

y = [arctan(x)]^2

Let u = arctan x and use the chain rule

y = u^2

dy/dx = d(u^2)/du * du/dx

= 2 arctan(x)/(1 + x^2)

or

(1 + x^2)*dy/dx = 2 arctan x = 2 sqrt y

Are you sure you wrote

(1+x^2)dy/dx((1+x^2)dy/dx)=2 correctly?

That has (1+x^2)dy/dx appearing twice in a row. It doesnt look right
