    First problem: Just a typo. Should be dx/dt = 3y^2/(6y). You had "x^2."

    Third problem:
    You have y' = 4/5 + (3/5)y'
    So (5/5)y' - (3/5)y' = 4/5
    (2/5)y' = 4/5
    You've got an extra negative sign.

    Fourth problem:
    x^2 + y^3 = 5y

    Take the first derivative:
    2x + 3y^2*y' = 5 y'

    Take the second derivative:
    2 + 6y*y' + 3y^2*y'' = 5y''

    3y^2*y'' - 5y'' = -2 - 6y*y'

    y'' = -(6y*y' + 2)/(3y^2 - 5)

    You've got the point (x,y) from the problem and y' at this point from the last problem.

    And for the record, you can TRY to bug me all night, but I'm going to be in bed by 11.

    The product rule

    Before the man differenciated he had,
    3y^2*y'

    Use the product rule

    [3y^2]'y'+[3y^2][y']'
    Thus,
    [6yy'][y']+[3y^2][y'']
    Thus,
    6y(y')^2+3y^2y'' (He made an error)

    The final answer is right, but your notation could be confusing, better to
    write it as:

    dy/dx=(3 x^2)/(x^3+1).

    The argument which leads to your solution however is confused. It should
    go more like:

    y=f(g(x)), where g(x)=x^3+1, and f'(x)=1/x.

    Then by the chain rule:

    dy/dx = f'(g(x)) g'(x) = [1/(x^3+1)] 3x^2 =(3x^2)/(x^3+1).
