Eqs yet: xy'' + (y')^2 -(y/x)^2 with y(1) = 2 and y'(1) = -1 I wish I could provide some work to show but I have zero idea on what to do with this.

Click to expand... xy'' + (y')^2 -(y/x)^2 = ? Your problem statement is incomplete - hence cannot be solved as posted. Please fix it! You seriously cannot have zero idea of this problem! What do you know about solution of second order non-linear DE? What topic was being taught in the class when this assignment was given?
