1. Cant seem to deduce the equation from the differential.
2. Hi,

Are you aware of the method of using the integrating factor? This is a method commonly in the further maths modules
3. Will be begining further maths in the following school year, so this cant be shown through methods learnt in a level maths?

Nope, solving Differential Equations using an Integrating Factor is usually in FP2.
5. You can show that the solution satisfies the differential equation (and is unique) by differentiating it.

No need for integrating factors here; just separate the variables, integrating directly. Be careful to remember the constant of integration.
