dy is the same as 1.dy, and so integrating 1 (which is congruent to ) with respect to y will give you

Unfortunately, my high school understanding of calculus doesn't give me a method to integrate the RHS of this equation. If someone here could do that then you should have your general solution. I have no idea if this is correct though, just a long shot. - May 5th 2013, 12:23 PMQwobRe: Differential Equation<don't know what method to use
^ the problem to me seems to be separating the unknowns and onto the different sides of the equation. I can't seem to factorise them myself.
