.

This is a Bernoulli Equation, so make the substitution .

Then , so

.

Substituting into the DE gives

.

Now this is First Order Linear, so use the Integrating Factor method.

The Integrating Factor is .

Multiplying through by the Integrating Factor gives

.

Since

.

And finally . You can do this using Partial Fractions.
