    double functioned differential

    g is differentiable .
    find the solution of
    y' + g'(x)y=g(x)g'(x)e^{-g(x)}

    g(x) could appear in the solution

    how to approach it?

    i pressume you want to solve for y, so an integrating factor for the ODE is g(x) multiply the equation and proceed, it's quite straightforward.

    i was taught that the integrating factor is k=e^{g(x)}
    y'e^{g(x)} + g'(x)ye^{g(x)}=g(x)g'(x)
    (ye^{g(x)})'=g(x)g'(x)
    (ye^{g(x)})=\int g(x)g'(x) +c

    how to proceed
    how i solve the right side

    For the RHS, substitute u = g(x). Then du = g'(x) dx.
