The question:

I'm not sure where to start. I tried getting it in a form where I can calculate the integrating factor, but nothing I do seems to work. Any suggestions?

add to both sides, then divide to both sides, does it separate?

You can if you assume that . It's a standard technique.

Ahh, ok. Thanks.

I suppose that you could always write it like this...

.

You can still use the Integrating Factor Method and then solve the equation using NFL.
