I had solved this equation to this implicit form, but I don't know how to simplify to a simpler form as the answer shown. Could someone help me? Thanks.

Add all those terms on both sides so they're all positive instead (just make to make it easier), and then combine the ln|x| and ln|y/x+1| using product rule for logarithms (i.e., log(a)+log(b)=log(ab)).

Thanks, and in tests, could we leave the answer in the implicit equation form? Or is it necessary to transform it into a parametric form as the professor taught in the class?

I asked Victor and he said either is fine, depending on which is more convenient.
