    why isnt this problem a Bernoulli function?

    i can see that the function is separable, but why not Bernoulli? here is the function

    dy/dx = (y^2+y)/(x^2+x)

    Bernoulli's equation has the form y'+P(x)y=Q(x)y^n, if you can't turn your equation into that form, it won't be a Bernoulli one.
