# Math Help - Galerkin Method

1. ## Galerkin Method

I do not know how to choose basic functions for example in the equation $y'+2y+6+4x=0\$ with initial condition $y\left ( 0 \right )=1\$.
Could someone explain me this?

2. Are you looking for an 'integrating factor'?

Edit: pardon me - clearly you aren't. (You could, though.)
