y'=1+x-y

i got y=x+(1-c)

for the isocline c=-1

i got tangent lines which are perpendicular

for c=0 the are not

why is that??

how do i find the slope of each isocline???

What do you mean you "got y= x+ (1-c)"?

No, it isn't. If y= x+ (1-c), then y'= 1, obviously. The general solution to y'= 1+ x- y isthis is a solution of this y'=1+x-y differential is y=x+(1-c)

y= ce

i got tangent lines which are perpendicular

for c=0 the are not

so generally how do i find the slope of each isocline

(those lines that we draw on the isoc lines)
