    Where is this problem from? Are you comfortable with substitutions?

    He told me I bet you can't integrate this then wrote it down on a piece of paper and handed it to me. Is it impossible to do with no further information given? It's not an official question he said he just came up with it when I asked him where it was from.

    Just multiply out the 3y^2 to both sides, then split the LHS as all the y's and RHS as all the x's

    But then you're left with 3y^2 dy = 2xdx + 3y^2 dx, how do you deal with the last term (3y^2dx)?

    so 3y^2 (dy/dx) = 2x + 3y^2.

    becomes... integral [3y^2] dy = integral [2x + 3y^2] dx

    3y^3/3 = 2x^2/2 + 3xy^2

    i think.

    nope, you can't integrate 3y^2 with respect to x, its a variable not a constant.

    It's not a proper question.

    Zacken

    It is a valid differential equation, that's known as Chini's equation. However, Zacken is correct that it cannot be solved analytically - though it can be approximately solved using numerical methods, so you may want to look up Euler's method for example.
