The function \(f : \mathbb{R} \to \mathbb{R}\) satisfies \(f(x) f(y) = f(x + y) + xy\) for all real numbers x and y. Find all possible functions f.

 

I tried subsituting in simple values for x and y, but nothing works. A full explanation would be appreciated, as I am really confused! Thank you so much!

I checked if there were constant solutions, and there are none, so I don't think there are any other solutions.

I have no idea how to solve this, but I did find this. I hope this helps. :)) 

Let x = 0

f(0)*f(y) = f(y) + 0

f(0) = 1

I do not know how to do it either but I would be interested in seeing the answer.
