# Thread: First order differential equation

1. ## First order differential equation

I have a differential equation of the form

(dy/dx)+c*y^2=d, where c,d are constants, how do i solve it? Thanks in advance and appreiate any of your time.

Kind regards

2. it's separable.

3. Thank you. But it's a non-linear first order differential equation because we have y^2 and we are not able to use an integrating factor. How are you suggesting to solve it?

4. i never mentioned something like "integrating" factor, what are you talking about?

i talked about a separable ODE, that's all, you can integrate directly.

5. yes now i understand. Thank you very much
