We just covered:

-First order linear ordinary differential equations

-Bernoulli Equations

-Simple substitutions.

This problem was assigned. Its supposedly a Bernoulli equation with respect to y, but I can't figure it out...

When I solve for dx/dy, I get dx/dy = x^3 -y/x, which is not a Bernoulli equation because of the factor of 1/x, and not x. Help?
