Can anyone tell me how to use dsolve to find the solution to the problem in the attachment.  It is faily easy to do using substitution for homogeneous coefficients, but dsolve seems to put out a very complicated solution to the problem.

with(DEtools):

2*x*y(x)+(x^2+y(x)^2)*(diff(y(x), x))

2*x*y(x)+(x^2+y(x)^2)*(diff(y(x), x))

dsolve(%)

y(x) = ((1/2)*(4+4*(4*x^6*_C1^3+1)^(1/2))^(1/3)-2*x^2*_C1/(4+4*(4*x^6*_C1^3+1)^(1/2))^(1/3))/_C1^(1/2), y(x) = (-(1/4)*(4+4*(4*x^6*_C1^3+1)^(1/2))^(1/3)+x^2*_C1/(4+4*(4*x^6*_C1^3+1)^(1/2))^(1/3)-((1/2)*I)*3^(1/2)*((1/2)*(4+4*(4*x^6*_C1^3+1)^(1/2))^(1/3)+2*x^2*_C1/(4+4*(4*x^6*_C1^3+1)^(1/2))^(1/3)))/_C1^(1/2), y(x) = (-(1/4)*(4+4*(4*x^6*_C1^3+1)^(1/2))^(1/3)+x^2*_C1/(4+4*(4*x^6*_C1^3+1)^(1/2))^(1/3)+((1/2)*I)*3^(1/2)*((1/2)*(4+4*(4*x^6*_C1^3+1)^(1/2))^(1/3)+2*x^2*_C1/(4+4*(4*x^6*_C1^3+1)^(1/2))^(1/3)))/_C1^(1/2)
