Hi all(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Quick one, if one had an equation y' = x on could simply separate the variables and integrate. Now it the equation y'' = x you would use separation of variables what drives this?

Also

y'' =0. Is the same as. y''dx =0 dx

Why is this legal?

Thanks in advance
