How does "this" equation turn into "that" equation?

Hello friends, I am having trouble understanding how equation 1 becomes equation 2…

It's only a series of multiplications; order and brackets don't matter;
like (* is now multiplication sign...no longer x):

2 * 3 * 4 * 5 = 120

2 * 5 * 4 * 3 = 120

2 * (5 * 4) * 3 = 120

Somebody playing a joke on you?

Btw, do you understand that your expression
can be simplified to: K * e^(gt)

Actually it can't unless the last factor in line 1 has a typo and the t is supposed to be a T.

Thanks from Denis
