# Differential watch

1. Just need some reassurance on these questions in terms of the cases..

Thankyou!

2. Hmm I am just looking at that paper and notice that there are some derivatives there (dy/dx) however I am unsure of your question, could you please elaborate? Do you need help or have you already done the paper?

Sorry, I don't understand what you want? Have you solved these?
4. post your workings and someone will check

Very sorry about the rotation of the screenshots, not sure why it's doing that!

1/(10y ) is incorrect...

you cannot raise the power & divide by the power...

instead rewrite 10y as an exponential...

Okay, Q1. There's no reason to be splitting into cases of and the negation of that. Why did you do so?

Furthermore, why did you put for your solution? is always positive and . If we get which is perfectly defined.

Bear has taken care of your Q2.

Again, why are you splitting into cases for Q3? You needn't.

I was told that you had to consider the different cases of the differential equation? Since the question reads: Please solve the differential equations and write a non-trivial solution.
Surely, x=0 would also be a solution/the equilibrium solution? Or am i wrong? i've just learnt this recently in lectures so my memory isn't up to scratcch sorry

Would there be different cases for any of the questions then?

I'll let someone with uni-level rigour take over, but I don't see why you need different cases for the questions.

I don't see how that wording requires different cases?
