Find the general solution of the differential equation

I'm having trouble finding the general solution of question 3. We just covered this and the teacher hasn't really covered everything but I want the headstart.

I tried separating this but it doesn't seem to be working. Could anyone guide me? I wanna look like smart when I go back to class.

Try typing it in next time ... it's just a single DE.

$x \cdot \dfrac{dy}{dx}=y+2\sqrt{xy}$

$\dfrac{dy}{dx}=\dfrac{y}{x} + 2 \sqrt{\dfrac{y}{x}}$

Let $v = \dfrac{y}{x} \implies y=xv \implies \dfrac{dy}{dx}=x \cdot \dfrac{dv}{dx}+v$

$x \cdot \dfrac{dv}{dx} + v = v + 2\sqrt{v}$

$x \cdot \dfrac{dv}{dx} = 2\sqrt{v}$

$\dfrac{dv}{2\sqrt{v}} = \dfrac{dx}{x}$


$v= (\ln{x}+C)^2$
