First Order Linear Equation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question about differential equations... The equation for a general linear differential equation that is:

dy/dx + P(x)y = Q(x)

So my question is can you have a Q(x) that has both x and y variables?

For Example:

dy/dx + (1/x)y = (1/x)y^2
