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}

f(x) = (x^2 + 1) / (x^4 +1) divided num & den by x^2 f(x) = (1 + 1/x^2 ) / (x^2 + 1/x^2) put x – 1/x = t = > 1 + 1/x^2 dx = dt & x^2 + 1/x^2 = (x – 1/x)^2 + 2 = t^2 + 2 ∫(x^2 + 1) / (x^4 +1)...

If X & Y are 2 x 2 matrices with integer elements such that X 3 +Y 3 = A, then find the det (X + Y): for A see attachement
 
 
by verification (trial and error) we can find that X = [ -1 0; 0 -1] & Y = [0 1; 0 -1]. det (X + Y) = 2
