Euler's Method

Hi all.

Could someone give me a hand with this:

Using Euler's method find an approximate solution to the IVP using step size h = 0.1

$$\frac{dy}{dx} = 4xy + 3$$ , $$y(0)=0$$

I know how to use Euler's method for something simple like $$\frac{dy}{dx} = x + y$$
But I'm just not to sure what to take as the $$f(x,y)$$.

Is it just simply $$f(x,y) = 4xy + 3$$

Thanks for any help.

I assume that since the answer was "yes", you will give it the most thought!
