Find a possible solution for if .
Then use the slope field for below to help graph a family of functions for (place your paper over the slope field and use the tangents as guides).

By tracing a series of slopes, you should predict that the original function is cubic.

Separate the variables so that -values are on one side of the equal sign and -values are on the other side.

Integrate both sides of the equation.

Solve for ... Did you get a cubic function, as predicted?
Note: , or just .
