Find the general sol'n of the given Dif EQ: WORK: So our auxiliary eq. is 8m^2 + 2m - 1 = 0 Factor: (2m + 1)(4m - 1) = 0, So m = -1/2, 1/4. Therefore, the gen. sol'n is: Is this right?

Therefore, the gen. sol'n is: Is this right? That is OK for the equation you are working on, but its not the equation you are asked to solve, which has a double root. RonL
