Divergence theorem help

hey pf! i had a general question with the divergence theorem. specifically, my text writes [tex]\iint_S \rho \vec{V} \cdot \vec{dS} = \iiint_v \nabla \cdot (\rho \vec{V})[/tex] where [itex]\rho[/itex] is a scalar, although not necessarily constant! to properly employ the divergence theorem, would i first let [tex]\rho \vec{V}=\vec{V'}[/tex] where [itex]\vec{V'}[/itex] is the vector to use the divergence theorem with, thus offering the first written result?

thanks!
