>How do you solve this dy = integral of y dx.

As others have pointed out, this really doesn't make sense- the
integral on the right CAN'T be equal to the differential on the left.

I suspect what you mean is "integrate BOTH sides of dy= y dx".

Don Taylor pointed out what you should do- get only y on one side of
the equation, only x and the other and then integrate.
