I have absolutely no idea how to solve these: SHOW THAT 1. (x doesNOT equal 0) satisfies the equation 2.y=xe^-x satisfies xy^(1st derivative)= (1-x)y 3. y=xe^-x^2/2 satisfies xy^(1st derivative)= (1-x^2)y

You should calculate the derivatives and then plug them into the given equations to see if they are satisfied. For y=1/x, you have y'=-1/x^2 y''=2/x^3. Just substitute these into the equation. It works.
