Find a possible solution for y if = 0.5x2.
Then use the slope field for below to help graph a family of functions for y (place your paper over the slope field and use the tangents as guides). Homework Help ✎

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

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

Integrate both sides of the equation.

Solve for y... Did you get a cubic function, as predicted?
Note: C1 + C2 = C3, or just C.
