I'm not too sure what to do after this.

Those roots give us the homogeneous solution: .

Now we must find the particular solution . . .

I conjectured that the solution is of the form: .

Ok, i managed to prove it all myself.. I just didnt know what to do because of the extra '20' term on the RHS.. now i know that you just put an A to represent the constant makes it a whole lot easier. Thank you!
