# Math Help - Separating Variables? (Sorry everyone! Now I'm totally done :))

1. ## Separating Variables? (Sorry everyone! Now I'm totally done :))

Is my answer for this: right? The initial conditions thing is really messing with me because I'm not sure if I'm doing anything right now :/ If I'm wrong which option works? Why? Thank you all so much!

post some work

You should be able to show us the equation with variables separated (functions of y and dy on one side, functions of x and dx on the other).

Okay here's what I had when I tried to separate the variables: dy/e^(3y)=e^(2x)*dx

Which integrates to $-\frac{1}{3}e^{-3y}=\frac{1}{2}e^{2x}+C$. Now you use the initial condition y(0)=1 to find C:

$-\frac{1}{3}e^{-3}=\frac{1}{2}e^{0}+C$
$C=-\frac{1}{3}e^{-3}-\frac{1}{2}$

So your solution is $-\frac{1}{3}e^{-3y}=\frac{1}{2}e^{2x}-\frac{1}{3}e^{-3}-\frac{1}{2}$ which is not one of the options.

Did I separate them incorrectly or something?

No, I think that's the correct solution. It was probably supposed to be option #3 or #4.
