## Abstract

We present a constructive method for solving (1)-(2) under hypotheses (i)-(iv) by assuming that function \(f(t,x)\) is monotone with respect to \(x\). The novelty of this paper is that we adapt the monotone technique to the case of anti-isotone operators, particularly when \(f(t,x)\) is a function nondecreasing in \(x\).
