Homework Help: How to solve this ODE?

  1. Nov 4, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    [tex](4x^3 p^2-2p)dx+(2x^4 p-x)dp=0[/tex]

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have no idea how to solve it. It's not an exact differential and It's not of any famous ODE form that. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Problem was solved. sorry that I opened a thread for it. I just needed to factor out (x^3p-1).
