"Less than" implies that that number will come after what is next.

something − 8

"The product of" implies multiplication, and in this case, you would replace "a number" with a value, such as x.

(6 times x)−8

(6x)−8

The final part, "equals", is hopefully self-explanatory.

(6x)−8=5

I have the equation $(1+{y}^{2})dx+(xy+1)dy=0$ . It is a linear differential equation of the first order. Now the problem is that this doesnt have the regular form of this type of equations which is

$\frac{dy}{dx}+p\left(x\right)y=q\left(x\right)$ .

I know I can divide both sides by dx and then I'll have$(1+{y}^{2})+(xy+1){y}^{\prime}=0$ . Still, it should be $(xy+1)+{y}^{\prime}$ not $(xy+1){y}^{\prime}$ .

I know I can divide both sides by dx and then I'll have
