The graph of a function f is shown.?
Use the differential equation and the given point to find an equation of the function
dy/dx = 4x+ (9x^2) / ( (3x^3 +1) ^3/2 )

You need to find the function using the process of integration such that:
`int dy = int (4x+ (9x^2)/((3x^3 +1)^(3/2))) dx`
Using the property of linearity of integral yields:
`y = int 4x dx + int (9x^2)/((3x^3 +1)^(3/2))) dx`
`y = 4x^2/2 + int (9x^2)/((3x^3 +1)^(3/2))) dx`
You need to solve the integral `int (9x^2)/((3x^3 +1)^(3/2))) dx ` using the following substitution such that:
`3x^3 + 1 = t => 9x^2 dx = dt`
Changing the variable yields:
`int (9x^2)/((3x^3 +1)^(3/2))) dx= int (dt)/(t^(3/2))`
Converting the power `1/(t^(3/2))` into a negative power yields:
`int (dt)/(t^(3/2)) = int (t^(-3/2)) dt`
`int (t^(-3/2)) dt = (t^(-3/2+1))/(-3/2+1) + c`
`int (t^(-3/2)) dt = -2/sqrt t + c`
Substituting back `3x^3 + 1` for t yields:
`int (9x^2)/((3x^3 +1)^(3/2))) dx = -2/sqrt(3x^3 + 1) + c`
`y = 4x^2/2 - 2/sqrt (3x^3 + 1) + c`
`y = 2x^2 - 2/sqrt (3x^3 + 1) + c`
The problem provides the information that the graph of f(x)=y intercepts y axis at `(0,2), ` hence, you may use this information to find the constant c such that:
`f(0) = 2*0^2 - 2/sqrt (3*0^3 + 1) + c`
`2 = -2 + c => c = 4`
`y = 2x^2 - 2/sqrt (3x^3 + 1) + 4`
Hence, evaluating the function f(x)=y, using the given conditions, yields `y = 2x^2 - 2/sqrt (3x^3 + 1) + 4.`
