(* First, we write the differential equation with correct Mathematica
syntax. *)

de = 4 x^2 + 2 y[x] y'[x] == 0;

(* Then, we solve it thanks to the DSolve[] function. *)

sols = DSolve[de, y[x], x];

(* Since we have two solutions -- one family of functions below the
x-axis and the other one above the x-axis, we build two expressions to
be plotted. *)

f1 = y[x] /. sols[] /. C -> C1;

f2 = y[x] /. sols[] /. C -> C1;

(* Finally, we plot a sample of the family of functions. *)

Plot[Table[{f1, f2}, {C1, -2, 2}], {x, -3, 2}, ImageSize -> 500,
PlotStyle -> Thick]
