How to go about solving this differential equation? I tried substitution and could not get any meaningful form of it. x + y + 1 + (−x + y − 3)y' = 0

So find that makes this work.
Pardon me but I still cant see how I can solve the homogeneous DE. I cant find a way to separate the variables u and v.

To make it more explicit, your DE can be written as: . It should be clear what to do now. A similar problem is here: http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...eneous-de.html
!! Thanks for all the help. I understand what to do now.
