Integrate both sides

**Stewart**, Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at 7:06pmAfter integrating and solving, I got approximately 4.711393061. Does this seem right?

**Count Iblis**, Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at 8:49pmIt's -4.711393061, to find out what sign you need, you need to consider the sign of dy/dx. You can see that because y = -4 at x = 1, dy/dx is negative, so at that point y(x) is negative and decreasing. It can't become positive, because that would require there to be a point where dy/dx = 0 between x = 1 and x = 3( assuming y is continuous), but x + 1/x doesn't become zero on that interval.
