Calculators How do you plot y'=3+2y on a TI-Nspire CX CAS?

  1. Apr 3, 2012 #1
    Hi, I'm new here. I did some research plotting the ODE of y'=3+2y without having x shows up in the equation. I can't figure it out, why the calculator does plot a harder equation but not a simple one? I can get the slope field with an equation that has an x in it. However, without x, my calculator just gives me nothing (without an initial condition setup), or a single dot (with the setup.)
    So, does anyone know what to do in order to get it work?

    Figured out myself, you have to use y1 instead of y, because y1 is the default function. Kind of a silly mistake...
