Please forgive the rather simple nature of my question. I am rather confused about it. I have just started a class on differential equations and I am confused on the proper use of the constant C after integrating. There are occasions in which I end up with something like(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y = e^{t + c}. If this is the same as e^{t}e^{c}, then is e^{c}essentially the same as c? Can anyone enlighten me as to the proper use of c in similar situations such as e^{6t + 6c}, etc.?
