## Homework Statement

Solve the ODE:

[tex] y'(x) = - \frac{y(x)}{\sqrt{a^2-y(x)^2}} [/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

To be honest I'm having trouble even classifying this ODE. My teacher hinted that the substitution [tex]z^2=a^2-y^2[/tex] could be helpful, but once I make the substitution, I can't seem to take the next step. I know I haven't shown much work, but if you could nudge me in the right direction I would be extremely grateful. Thanks.
