#### Answer:

# y = -ln|C-e^x| #

#### Explanation:

We have:

# dy/dx = e^(x+y) #

Which we can write as

# dy/dx = e^(x) e^(y) #

We can collect terms for similar variables:

# e^(-y) dy/dx = e^x #

Which is a separable First Order Ordinary non-linear Differential Equation, so we can *"separate the variables"* to get:

# int \ e^(-y) \ dy = int e^x \ dx #

Both integrals are those of standard functions, so we can use that knowledge to directly integrate:

# -e^(-y) = e^x - C #

And we can readily rearrange for

# e^(-y) = C-e^x #

# :. -y = ln|C-e^x| #

Leading to the General Solution:

# y = -ln|C-e^x| #
