Hey guys I can't solve this first order DE
(2e^y - x ) *dy/dx = 1
Im not sure what method to use and got really confused. Any help appreciated!

1. Define a new variable v=e^y and rewrite the equation in terms of dv/dx.
2. Define another new variable u=v/x and rewrite the dv/dx equation in terms du/dx. You should get a separable ODE.
3. Solve for u(x) then substitute back its value in terms of y and make y the subject of the equation. (May have to use exponentiation and the quadratic equation)
