Hi, I'm struggling with a differential equations:

y'=(1-y)cosx

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

y'=cosx-ycosx

p(x)=e^(∫-cosxdx)

=e^-sinx

y'e^-sinx=e^(-sinx)cosx-e^(-sinx)ycosx

then I get confused because of the derivative.

I thought it could be

y'e^(-sinx)=d/dx(e^(-sinx)y) but that clearly doesnt work...
