    Finding this differential

    I'm trying to do a homework assignment, I've gotten all the problems right but the two remaining. They both involve differentials.

    "Find the differential of the function"

    y=s/(3+2s)

    I thought this would just mean to take the derivative of what remains, but in the area to enter the response it just says "Dy=" rather than "dy/dx=" leading me to believe there's something I'm missing here. Could somebody walk me through doing this problem?

    Differential....

    I am not sure exactly what you're asking, but it seems they want you to differentiate the equation and then write it as a differential, meaning separate the dy/ds terms so would be dy = (the derivative of y) . ds

    Does that help at all?
