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

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?
