Having not studied calculus for a couple of years I am a tad rusty. Was hoping someone could give me a kick start.

The question I need to solve is:

dy/dx = [(4y + 5)/(2x + 3)]^2

Any help would be much appreciated...

Regards.

So is that then integration by parts?

So;

int [u^-2} = int [v^-2]

= (u^-1)/-1 = (v^-1)/-1

= [(4y + 5)^-1]/-1 = [(2x + 3)^-1]/-1 + c

Doesn't seem correct...?

u = 4y + 5

=> du/dy = 4

=>dy = du/4

=> int [dy/(4y + 5^2)] = 1/4 int [du/u^2] = ...?

v = 2x + 3

=>dv/dx = 2

=>dx = dv/2

=> int [dx/(2x + 3)^2] = 1/2 int [dv/v^2] = ...?

Is that correct?

yes , it is..
