Homework Help: Differential Equation

  1. Oct 29, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Show that the differential equation is a Bernoulli equation by rewriting it in a different form:

    [tex]y'=\frac{3x^2y - y^3}{2x^2}[/tex]

    I've tried numerous algebraic operations without any luck. Am I supposed to transform the equation algebraically to get it into Bernoulli form, or am I supposed to use a substitution, if so what substitution?

    I think just rearrange the equation algebraically would be ok. Try to write it in the standard form. What actually got you stuck?
