Hi,

Apologies in advance if this is a simple/stupid question - I am a biologist...

I have an equation of the form:

z . d^2y/dx^2 = t . dy/dx + r

where z, t and r are all constants. I am wondering if there is a simpler way to state this? With the eventual aim of having the equation in the form t = ..... as at the moment I cannot see how t relates to dy/dx as the d^2y/dx^2 is variable.

Many thanks in advance.
