Find the general solution of the ODE

\begin{equation*}

y'+\frac{2}{t} y=1.

\end{equation*}

**Xuewen Yang**:

I will try to type this afterwards. See attachment

**Xuewen Yang**:

As promised:

$$ dy/dt + 2y/t = 1 \\

\mu (dy/dt) + 2y\mu/t = \mu \\

d/dt (\mu y) = d\mu/dt\cdot y + \mu\cdot dy/dt \\

\implies d\mu/dt\cdot y = 2y\mu/t \\

\implies \mu = t^2 \\

d/dt(t^2 y) = t^2 \\

\implies t^2 y = (1/3)t^3 + c \\

\implies y = (1/3)t + c/t^2

$$

Xuewen Yang,

good job, for multiplication do not use * (it is a convolution, different operation) use either \cdot like in $a\cdot b$ or \times like $a\times b$.

Xiaozeng Yu, no point to post inferior solution (scan) after superior (typed) has been posted. This time I awarded "scan posted after scan", but not in the future.
