    Separable Differential Equation

    I am confunsed with this problem:

    dy/dx=y + 1/y^2

    would it be:
    \int y^2(y-dy) = \int dt ?

    I do not know what the hell is dt ?!

    It will be:
    \frac{dy}{y+\frac{1}{y^2}}=dx ..

    NOTE: There is a sub-forum for the differential equations ..

    Yeah i'm sorry it should be dx. But the derivative of the left side would be what you said? I know that the right side would be just x, but I don't know how to resolved for the left side.

    Multiply the integrand by  \, \frac{y^2}{y^2} to get :
    \int \frac{y^2}{y^3+1} \, dy .. which is easy ..
