# Math Help - Finding a general solution to an exact differential equation.

1. ## Finding a general solution to an exact differential equation.

Hellooo.

$dy/dx = 5^xln5+1/(x^2+1)$
2. Have you learned how to differentiate functions of the form $a^x$ yet? Try differentiating $a^x=e^{x\ln a}$ and see what you get.
The derivative of $\arctan x$ is also $\frac{1}{1+x^2}$.
