    Ok, so on a homework set by my teacher, one of the questions either has dodgy wording or I'm being thick... I am 100% sure of the method and the working etc, just the wording escapes me.

    A curve has a gradient function (f'(x) here):

    1) find an expression for y in terms of x
    2) find the particular curve that passes through the point (x, y)
    3)...

    Do the first two parts of the question mean I'm to initially find the function of the curve with the arbitrary constant 'c', then work it out in part two to using the co-ordinates? I feel like that would be, but seeing as this is taken from a past paper (no dates, just copied and pasted onto a separate document) I'd just like to make sure. Thanks in advance!

    Yes.
