Solve the differential equation dy/dx = -xe^y and determine the equation of the curve through P(1,2)
I tried solving the differential equation and I get y = log(x^2/2 + C).
Is this correct?
Now I forgot how to find the equation.

Your solution is almost good, just a change of the sign will fix it.
If it has to pass through P(1,2)
substitute x=1, and y=2 and find C.
