$\displaystyle

y_p (x) = Axe^{ - 2x} + Be^{3x}

$

Method of undetermined coefficients - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

in particular the following paragraph:

f a term in the above particular solution for y appears in the homogeneous solution, it is necessary to multiply by a sufficiently large power of*x*in order to make the two solutions linearly independent. If the function of*x*is a sum of terms in the above table, the particular solution can be guessed using a sum of the corresponding terms for*y*.
