Sorry for what may seem like a basic question. So here goes :
I am reviewing my differential equations using for the moment the Shaum's Outline for differentiation equation and the question is the following :
Show that y = 1/(x^2 - 1) is a solution for y' + 2xy^2 =0 on ( -1, 1).
While I can easily find the answer by hand I wish to know how the above simple problem is expressed in Mathematica's Dsolve form. I have tried different forms, but not successfully.
I want to let everyone know that I have just ordered one of the books on the OED that when I receive it, will ensure that I will hopefully only ask serious questions.
Thanks in advance
