I notice that: $$\newcommand{\ddx}{{\mathrm d \over \mathrm d x}} \ddx yy'y'' = y'^2y'' + y\ddx y'y''= y'^2y'' + y(y''^2 + y'y''')$$ So we have $${1 \over y}\ddx yy'y'' + y''^2 = 0$$ I'm not sure that is helps though other than that $y = c \ne 0$, a constant is clearly a solution.

indeed it's the first one, but it's irrelevant because my lecturer just told us there is a mistake with this exercise.
thanks a lot!
if you would like to help me with another equation -
this is a cauchy problem:
y'y'''-3(y'')^2-((2y')^5)/y^3=0
y(0)=y'(0)=1
y''(0)=-1
thanks a lot! you're awesome!

Integrating then gives $${y'' \over y'} - 2\log {y''^2y' \over y^3} = c$$ Thanks from lola94
