    well what is it then when you get dy by it self? and have something like dy = 2dx

    separation of variables. take the integral of each.

    something like the differential?

    the derivative of a straight line is simply the slope

    Differentiate \[y=2x\]\[\frac{ dy }{ dx }=2\]\[dy=2dx\]that looks familiar Integrate:\[\int\limits dy=\int\limits 2 \space dx\]\[y=2x+C\]

    \[\int\limits dy = \int\limits 2xdx \]

    so differentiate just means put the dy by it self?

    <.< using words that are so similar is not a good idea

    you are basically taking the antiderivative, which in essence is differentiating.
