None of it is easy to read.Which part of the working that you can't read?

I did zoom in & struggled through.

When you substitute back in for v (to eliminate v) what did you plug in ?

From now on, please try to follow the forum rules more closely.

This is actually a really cool problem, it's a "Reverse" homogeneous equation.

There is another method to solve this Differential equation is by converting it to exact form

multiply the whole equation by xdx

=> ## xdy + ydx = x^2y^3dx ##

now multiply and divide by x on RHS

## xdy + ydx = (xy)^3(dx/x) ##

now using xdy + ydx = d(xy)

## \frac {d(xy)} {(xy)^3} = \frac {dx} {x} ##

## \int \frac {d(xy)} {(xy)^3} = \int \frac {dx} {x} ##

now it is easily integrable

multiply the whole equation by xdx

=> ## xdy + ydx = x^2y^3dx ##

now multiply and divide by x on RHS

## xdy + ydx = (xy)^3(dx/x) ##

now using xdy + ydx = d(xy)

## \frac {d(xy)} {(xy)^3} = \frac {dx} {x} ##

## \int \frac {d(xy)} {(xy)^3} = \int \frac {dx} {x} ##

now it is easily integrable
