(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

y = xf(y') + g(y')

Let y' = P

taking d/dx and rearranging gives

dx/dP - xf'(P)/{P - f(P)} = g'(P)/(P - f(P))

a 1st order linear differential equation in standard form.

2. Relevant equations

When I attempt to solve by the suggested standard method, I end up with the following integral:

[tex]\int f'(P)dp/(P - f(P))[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm at a loss as how to go about integrating it.
