I have a few nagging questions that are preventing me from solving calculus problems.. Can someone give me a hand?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

----------

Question 1

[tex] e^xy' = (4x+1)y^2 [/tex]

From the equation above, is it possible to do this:

[tex] \frac{y'}{y^2} = \frac{4x+1}{e^x} [/tex]

Aren't you supposed to divide one at a time, like this?

[tex] \frac{e^xy'}{y^2} = (4x+1) [/tex]

How would I get the [tex] \inline e^x [/tex] to the other side?

----------

Question 2

How do you tell the difference between these two?

[tex] 2 - 3 = -1 [/tex] and [tex] 2-3 = -6 [/tex] ?

(One latter being (2)(-3) = - 6?)
