    y' + yf(x) + g(x) =0 only


    or perhaps special cases such as
    y' + yf(x) +yn g(x) =0, except n=-1, BERNOULLI
    y' + f(y)/x +g(y) =0 TREAT x and y THE OTHER WAY ROUND

    It has to be y, if it's not y then it's a non-linear DE.

    Bernoulli DE's aren't linear.

    Thank you for the reply.

    I kind of meant like in this example:

    Mr S leaves his final answer (general solution) in terms of 2y^2 etc. do you not need to isolate y?

    Thank you though,

    this is a different type of ODE known as homogeneous in x and y

    final answer can be any form if one is not specifically asked.

    this type of equation however is called homogeneous in x and y

    Sorry about that, and thanks for your help.

    May I ask you in your experience have you found that 1st order des 2nd order des are common in STEP?

    I have almost no experience in STEP, but former students of mine that have done STEP, said thee is always an ODE in STEP (I think in STEP II)

    Nevertheless ODE solving is very important for practical reasons as well as "building tools/building intelligence" reasons
