Salutations, I have a problem when I approach this ODE: $$\left(\frac{y}{y'}\right)^2+y^2=b^2\left(x\frac{y}{y'}\right)^2$$ I have done a series of steps as I show in this document: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Ht4...ew?usp=sharing But I'm not convinced that those were the correct steps neither solutions were adequated, and my question is: How would be the mathematical steps to apply to find the correct solution of the ODE? So, I would like any guidance or starting steps or explanations to find the solution of this interesting problem. Thanks for your attention.

Most useful step is substitution , example : y=ux I checked your document and steps are correct as i see

Thanks for your commentary, but I have proven y=kx in both sides and there is no equality, that's the reason why I require help to find a correct procedure. Thanks for your attention.

Hi, thanks for your commentary and observation, I didn't realize I had made a mistake with the sign and a I think I could solve it. I share my procedure in this link. https://drive.google.com/file/d/13kI...ew?usp=sharing Thanks for your attention.
