Hello everyone. I'm going back to all my old webworks and trying to finish them and i'm still having problems on first order. It says this is seperable but i'm not seeing it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here are the directions:

The differential equation

has an implicit general solution of the form F(x,y) = K.

In fact, because the differential equation is separable, we can define the solution curve implicitly by a function in the form

F(x,y) = G(x) + H(y) =K.

Find such a solution and then give the related functions requested.

F(x,y) = G(x) + H(y) =

Okay well this is what i attempted, and i'm not seeing how this is seperable.

the very bottom is the answer the Ti-89 pumped out. But i'd like to know how to do it as well. And the form the Ti-89 put out confuses me, if i want the answer in the form of g(x) + h(y) = K would i solve for C1?
