    Sounds like homework problem. You'll have to show some work first. But for starters try asking yourself what kind of DE it is, and what method should be applied.

    (btw, I've requested that this be moved to the homework section)

    Can we assume that "1/(sin)" should be "1/(sin x)"? If so that is a linear differential equation. There is a standard formula for the integrating factor. Use it!
