    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data


    3. The attempt at a solution

    y` = y/x -(y/x)^2

    {y/x=z , y=zx , y`=z+xz`}


    -z^2dx = xdz

    what`s next ?

    TNX . :smile:

    Next is to move the -z^2 and x factors around so they are with, respectively, dz and dx. Then integrate.

    To integrate that, you need your z's on one side and your x's on the other. Dividing through by x*z^2 should do the trick.
