    Finding General Solution (ODE)

    Hello people....

    I got problem to find the ODE where e^(0.5x) and e^(-0.5x) are the solution of the equation.

    I really can't think of any initial step I should take, could someone advise me ?

    Thank You

    HallsofIvy --> thank you for the answer, can you show me how you get r= 0.5 and r=-0.5

    I think I forgot the general formula already (currently I m focusing on Wronskian...
