Hi Ivan, A general solution of a differential consists in a family of functions. A specific function may belong to several such families or differential equations, depending of what you consider the constant of integration. E.g. y==3x-2 is be a solution of: y'==3 where we consider 2 to be a constant of integration. On the other hand, y==3x-2 is also a solution to y=y' x -2, where we now consider 3 to be the constant of integration.
