Should be exp^[5 *ln(t)] which = t ?

Forgot to include the dy in here

I don't know much about integrating factors, but I do know it is to help make an equation that would normally be unsolvable, solvable. I would like to learn more about them and how to solve equations like these.

I cannot integrate a function of y and t with respect to y. Do I separate all the variables, y on the left and t on the right? But then wouldn't the integrating factor still bring me a function of t on both sides???
