Hi!, @Theplum:

Welcome, to Forum !.

If you learn correctly the use of desolve, you can see, better explained in the AUR HP50G, from ...

h10032.www1.hp.com › ctg › Manual

Chapter, 3-56 and Chapter 16.

For HP PRIME ...

Note: G_0, is referred to differential equation, or first order.

In Wolfram Alpha ...

Kind Regards !.
Have a nice day !.

Hello,

The command you want is "desolve". Before beginning, press the CAS key to move to the CAS environment. You can the command you need in toolbox->CAS->Solve->Differential Equation. Press the HELP key once you've selected it to see the built in help for that command.

Repalce dy/dx with y' in your equation. You can get the ' mark on the shift parenthesis key. It puts them in as a pair, so delete one. So your equation will be desolve(y'=2*x*y,y) and press ENTER.

Wow these seem awesome. Thank you all!

But I have one more question...

If I type 2*x*y as 2xy, it will give me a different solution. Isn't it supposed that these two are the same? f0_o

That is interpreted as 2*xy (a variable named 'xy'). When working in the CAS it is definitely best not to use implicit multiplication as it can be ambiguous.
