I've been kind of self teaching myself first order derivities...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

this is really my first shot at it.. want to know if this is right so far

[tex]\frac{dy}{dx} = \frac{y(1-x^5y)}{x}[/tex]

[tex]xdx = y (1-x^5y)dx[/tex]

[tex]xdy = (1y-x^5y^2)dx[/tex]

[tex]xdy = ydx - x^5y^2dx[/tex]

[tex]\frac {xdy - ydx}{y^2} = \wr -x^5dx[/tex]

[tex]\wr d\frac{x}{y} = \wr -x^5dx[/tex]

[tex]\frac{x}{y} = \frac{-x^6}{6}[/tex]

[tex]\frac{1}{y} = \frac{-x^7}{6}[/tex]

does this look right so far? and how can I simplify it more?
