# How do you integrate (1/x) dy/dx? watch

1. So am stuck on integrating this which is probably more simple than I think it is: (1/x) dy/dx

Note: this isn't just integrating (1/x) its integrating (1/x) with dy/dx!!

This really needs to be asked in the Maths Forum (rather than Mathematics, which is the forum for questions about Uni courses rather than actual maths questions!), but I think the short answer is there is no simple formula for this.

What is the actual question that you've been asked?
3. Is it not just ln(x)+c?
4. (Original post by lamp-y)
Is it not just ln(x)+c?
That gives you 1/x when differentiated, not (1/x)(dy/dx)
