To solve the differential equation ( \frac{dy}{dx} + 3y = 0 ) with the initial condition ( y(0) = 1 ), we can separate variables and integrate both sides.

Starting with the given differential equation: [ \frac{dy}{dx} + 3y = 0 ]

Separating variables: [ \frac{dy}{y} = -3dx ]

Integrating both sides: [ \int \frac{1}{y} dy = \int -3dx ]

[ \ln|y| = -3x + C ]

where ( C ) is the constant of integration.

Applying the initial condition ( y(0) = 1 ): [ \ln|1| = -3(0) + C ] [ 0 = C ]

Thus, the particular solution is: [ \ln|y| = -3x ]

To find ( y ): [ |y| = e^{-3x} ]

Applying the initial condition again: [ |1| = e^{0} ] [ 1 = 1 ]

So, the solution to the differential equation with the initial condition is: [ y(x) = e^{-3x} ]
