As promised:

$$dy/dt + 2y/t = 1 \\ \mu (dy/dt) + 2y\mu/t = \mu \\ d/dt (\mu y) = d\mu/dt\cdot y + \mu\cdot dy/dt \\ \implies d\mu/dt\cdot y = 2y\mu/t \\ \implies \mu = t^2 \\ d/dt(t^2 y) = t^2 \\ \implies t^2 y = (1/3)t^3 + c \\ \implies y = (1/3)t + c/t^2$$

Xuewen Yang,

good job, for multiplication do not use * (it is a convolution, different operation) use either \cdot like in $a\cdot b$ or \times like $a\times b$.

Xiaozeng Yu, no point to post inferior solution (scan) after superior (typed) has been posted. This time I awarded "scan posted after scan", but not in the future.

sorry, it took me a while figuring out how to post the non-oversized version of my work...
