    Given the differential equation: (y^4)(e^2x) + y' = 0

    NOTE: The differential equation above is attached in a microsoft word document for better legibility. Additionally my work is attached as a jpeg file.

    The questions:

    a)Find the general solution.

    b)Find the particular solution such that y(0) = 1.

    y^4*e^2x +dy/dx = 0

    or dy/dx = -y^4*e^2x

    or (-1/y^4)dy = e^2x dx

    Integrating we have 3/y^3 = 1/2 e^2x + C

    or 3/(1/2 e^2x +c ) = y^3...General Solution

    Putting x = 0 we have 3/( 1/2 + c ) = 1

    or 1/2 + c = 3

    so c = 5/2

    So particular solution = 3/(1/2 e^2x +5/2 ) = y^3

    Hope it is clear
