By the title "DE", is this a differential equation? Does your equation mean y''''+4y=0?

Since the solutions are complex conjakates thus the general solution is,

who do you get those complex solotions?

can you put into the ct?

Take square roots,

But, Thus,

There are hence 4 possibilities (based on plus minus signs).

Finally if,

then by the same argument you get the same solutions, as before. - Jun 26th 2006, 11:48 AMThePerfectHacker
Method 2) (The is the elegant way. [My method if you are curious was to guess and play around with the roots cuz I was too lazy to work it out])

You have,

Express this in polar form,

Now apply, de Moivre's theorem

And the roots are,

one for each value of . And

You get your solutions.
