## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am having trouble solving the following nonlinear first order differential equation:

dy/dx = mx + b - k*y^2

The variables m, b and k are constants.

I have had DE in school, but it was mostly linear first order, so I am not sure how to solve this one. Someone has recommended Riccati but I do not know how to go about solving it.

Please help.
