Does y' = dy/dx

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I was given a question on a test today to find dy/dx.

both y and x were involved in the expression.

I solved for y'

Did I awnser the question correctly, ie, is y' = dy/dx?
yes, y' is just another notation.

y' was Newton's notation, dy/dx was Leibniz's notation.
