y' + (2/x)y = 3/x^2

2. Relevant equations

separation of variables

3. The attempt at a solution

First I turned it into

dy/dx + (2/x)y = 3/x^2 dx

then multiplied both sides by dx

dy + (2/x)y = 3/x^2 dx

I then tried to divide both sides by 2/x and got

dy + y = 3/2x

Do I just integrate both sides now?
