x dy/dx + y = 1/y^2, solve using bernoulli's equation. i got to du/dx + (2u)/x = 2x(u)^(-1/2). the u^(-1/2) is obviously a problem if im going to solve it using an integrating factor. if that is not what you yourself have gotten to then please show me my error.

alright thanks, my teacher never showed us that if you set one of the variables equal to zero you can make it a one variable function. so say i approach x=0 and find the limit of that to be infinity. does the original function f(x,y) not exist?

im guessing you meant sin(x)^5. in which case yeah you did it wrong. you derive (x)^k , k being a constant, like this k*(x)^(k-1)*x' so f'(x)=5sin(x)^4*cos(x)
