    Is x^3 + y^3 -xy^2 dy/dx = 0 a homogeneous equation?

    Okay I keep trying to solve this through the method of substitution

    the equation is

    x^3 + y^3 -xy^2 dy/dx = 0

    I know dy/dx = F(Y/x)

    I use v = (y/x) and um y =xv

    I have the answer, but it keeps coming out incorrect. Can someone please help me with this?
