Sorry to post this again, but I am still unable to understand it and need help. Please help.1) Using 3(x3)(x^26x+23)^2 as the answer to differentiating f(x)=(x^26x+23)^3/2, which I have been able to do, I need to find the general solution of the differential equation dy/dx= (2/27)*(x3)*((x^26x+23)/(y))^1/2, (y>0) in implicit form. (* means to multiply)2) I need the particular solution of the differential equation in(1) for which Y=2 when X=1. 3)I then need this particular solution in explicit form (please state this). I know this is asking a lot but I am really struggling and close to despair with this. Thank you so much.

MathMate,
Please confirm or correct typo:
Using 3(x3)(x^26x+23)^(1/2) as the answer to differentiating f(x)=(x^26x+23)^(3/2)
So
f'(x)=3(x3)(x^26x+23)^(1/2)
For
dy/dx= (2/27)*(x3)*((x^26x+23)/(y))^1/2
Separate variables and integrate:
∫ y^(1/2) dy = ∫ (2/27)(x3)(x^26x+23)^1/2 dx
After integration,
(2/3)y^(3/2) = (2/81)(x^26x+23)^(3/2)+C
which reduces to
y^(3/2)=1/27(x^26x+23)^(3/2)+C
Substitute initital conditions x=1.3, y=2 to solve for
C=0.25755360984321
Therefore
y=(1/27(x^26x+23)^(3/2)+0.25755360984321)^(2/3)
for which (1.3,2) is a particular solution.
Check the solution by substituting y into the original differential equation and make sure the equation is satisfied for all values of x whenever y>0.

Mgraph,
1)f'(x)=(1/2)*3(x^26x+23)^2*(2x6)=
(1/2)*2(x3)*3(x^26x+23)^2=
(x3)*3(x^26x+26)=3(x3)(x^26x+23)
In the differential equation we separate
variables:
27*sqrt(y)dy=2*(x3)*sqrt(x^26x+23)dx
Let z=x^26x+23 then dz=(x^26x+23)'dx
dz=(2x6)dx=2*(x3)dx
27sqrt(y)dy=sqrt(z)dz Integrating
27*y^(3/2)/(3/2)=z^(3/2)/(3/2) + C
18*y^(3/2)=(2/3)*(x^26x+23)^(3/2) + C
2)If y=2 when x=1
18*2^(3/2)=(2/3)*18^(3/2) + C
In left side:
(2/3)*18^(3/2)=(2/3)*9^(3/2)*2^(3/2)=
(2/3)*27*2^(3/2)=18*2^(3/2) => C=0
The particular solution:
18*y^(3/2)=(2/3)*(x^26x+23)^(3/2)
27*y^(3/2)=(x^26x+23)^(3/2)
9^(3/2)*y^(3/2)=(x^26x+23)^(3/2)
9*y=x^26x+23
y=(x^26x+23)/9
3) 9yx^2+6x23=0 
calculus typo 
MathMate,
Sorry, MGraph is right. I misread the data as Y=2 and X=1.3 instead of Y=2 and X=1.
In fact, 3) belongs to a different sentence. However, the process of solution does not change.
