I am trying to solve a homogeneous, first-order, linear, ordinary differential equation but am running into what I am sure is the wrong answer. However I can't identify what is wrong with my working?!
. Let $z=x/y$, so that $y=x/z$ and Then
However, my book: *A Modern Introduction to Differential Equations 2nd edition by Henry Ricardo* says "this first-order equation is homogeneous and can be solved implicitly".
They pursued the method of letting $z=y/x$ and obtained the solution as
Why are the two different substitutions, which should both be suitable, giving me two different answers?
