I'm solving a a differential equation in Mathematica and was wondering how to show the steps, like how Wolfram|Alpha does it, in the program. Any ideas?

I don't believe Mathematica will do that on its own, but you can obtain the Wolfram|Alpha result (including step-by-step) like this:

`WolframAlpha["solve (x+1) y'(x) + y(x) == x"]`

WolframAlpha probably doesn't use the method it shows actually to solve differential equations under normal circumstances. The steps are most likely a separate calculation to show how one

couldsolve it using elementary techniques, and this isn't implemented inMathematica. – Oleksandr R. – 2014-06-19T12:45:29.850
