Solve: (x^2 + 2y^2)dx + xydy = 0

xydy = -(x^2 + 2y^2)dx

dy/dx = -(x/y) - (2y/x)

let v = y/x, y = vx, dy/dx = v + xdv/dx

v + x(dv/dx) = -(1/v) - 2v

please check algebra here:

x(dv/dx) = (-1-3v^2)/v

-vdv/(1+3v^2) = dx/x

with a u substitution I get

LHS: -(1/6)ln|1 + 3y^2/x^2|

So:

ln|1 + 3y^2/x^2| = -6ln|x| + C

Is this correct so far? Also please could you show me some skills on how to wrap this up correctly. Thanks so much.
