So far I have

You have to combine them right and get a common denominator? So I have

But what do I do from here? So far, we have only done examples in class with 2 variables, A and B, but not with C. So its throwing me off.

I'm assuming that the integral is:

You've done well. Just multiply the right-hand side a bit more and collect like terms:

Equating the coefficients, we see that:

etc.etc. - Jul 6th 2008, 01:48 PMJhevon
Alternatively.

call your equation (1):

now, plug in y = 0 into (1). this will get rid of B and C and give you an equation to solve for A

then, plug in y = 3 into (1). this will get rid of A and B and give you an equation with C as the only unknown, so you can solve for it

then, plug in y = -2 into (1). this will get rid of A and C and...you know the drill :p
