Math: Differential Equations

I've been stuck on this math hw problem for a while, I was thinking of taking the integral of the equation, but I've been messing up too much that I'm not sure anymore.

Q: Is it possible to solve y'=x/(x^(2)-1) for y(1) = 0?

Thank you!

  2. dy/y = x secx dx

    I don't think x secx can be done in elementary functions
