Hi There,

I am new to this forum.

I was going through some of my old university notes the other day pertaining to calculus and solving first order differential equations via separation of variables, and came across a problem where some of the simplifications I wrote down at the time (20 years ago) from either myself, or the lecturer, just didn't make sense.

The problem probably lies with me; as these days, at work, if I do math, I tend not to do it manually and via software.

So, whilst I remember some of the fundamentals and pretty much know how the basics work; I have forgotten some of the simplifications and shortcuts.

Anyway, the above problem kind of led me to a few other issues too, and I was hoping that by joining this forum someone could assist and/or explain to me where I have gone wrong and what the real explanations for my confusion are.

Would you/anyone mind?

If not I will then upload a document I recently wrote on the matter that hopefully explains the problem(s).

Kind regards,

Jim.
