## Goten77 Group Title if i said differentiate y=2x does that mean take the derivative? or what exactly? one year ago one year ago

1. hbk19 Group Title

yes

2. Goten77 Group Title

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

3. abb0t Group Title

separation of variables. take the integral of each.

4. Goten77 Group Title

something like the differential?

5. UnkleRhaukus Group Title

the derivative of a straight line is simply the slope

6. ChmE Group Title

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

7. abb0t Group Title

$\int\limits dy = \int\limits 2xdx$

8. Goten77 Group Title

so differentiate just means put the dy by it self?

9. Goten77 Group Title

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

10. abb0t Group Title

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