recall that exact differential equations are those of the form , where

So this guy starts off looking like an exact equation, right, with and

but lo and behold, . thus we need to find an integrating factor

Recall that we can find the integrating factor by the differential equation:

so here we have:

multiplying through by we obtain:

which is now an exact equation, since

can you continue?
