Homework Help: Solving a differential equation

  1. Feb 18, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Find the general solution:
    [itex]2xy \frac{dy}{dx} = y + x^4[/itex]

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have tried to solve this as a linear first order equation, a Bernoulli equation, and an exact equation. I'm not sure how to approach this, any ideas?
