First Order DE Problem

I've been kind of self teaching myself first order derivities...

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?

Check this part again. And put in some integration constant.
