You need to solve the exact differential equation, hence you should  divide by x both sides to preserve the equation such that:

`dy/dx + y = (1-y)/x`

You need to keep `dy/dx`  to the left side, hence you need to subtract y both sides:

`(dy)/dx = (1-y)/x - y =gt dy/dx = (1-y - xy)/x`

You need to multiply by dx both sides such...
