This is related to differential equations, but I think my question has more to do with log identities than DE.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I keep seeing equations like

1/8 lny=t+ c

simplified to get the solution

y= ce^8t

but I am unsure of the identity being used to get 1/8 into the exponent as 8. I already understand how everything else is simplified, just not this part. Thanks!
