What do you know about separation of variables ?

that you can separate them if there is an x and a y on the right side of the equation and they are multiplying

Alright, so can you separate x and y in your equation ?

I don't think so because there is no x on the right side it's only y?

Alright, then, you must reread your notes, because the equation you posted is separable, as it's a simpler case of the general

[tex] \frac{dy}{dx} = X(x)Y(y) [/tex]

In your case, X(x)=1, so the variables can be separated.
