Solution:
Let us assume a solution of the original differential equation as:
y=e^{ax}
Hence the given differential equation becomes:
a^{2}e^{ax}+ae^{2ax}=0 \Rightarrow e^{ax}=-a \Rightarrow y=\frac{logy}{x} \Rightarrow y^{1/y}=e^{x}

Thanks & Regards

We have sinx*sin(60 – x)*sin(60 + x) = 1/4* sin3x sin10*sin30*sin50*sin70 =1/2*sin10*sin(60 – 10)*sin(60 + 10) =1/2*1/4*sin(3*10) =1/2*1/4*1/2 =1/16
