(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[itex]\frac{dy}{dx}=\frac{2y - x + 7}{4x - 3y -18}[/itex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried using v = y/x and got nothing. Same goes for trying to find an integrating factor to make the equation exact. I am given a hint, Find h and k so that the substitution x = u+h, y=v+k transforms the above to a homogenous differential equation. I'm not sure what the means or how I'm supposed to use that. Thanks for any help.
