The question is to find the solution for
for when y(1)=-1
here is my working
then by partial fractions the left hand side is
and right hand side is
raising by power of e
But this does not appear to me to be right, as the y term has fallen off all together, and I don't have the answer for this problem to check, plus am confused where the y(1)=-1 comes in.
2. If you're going to say something like this, you should back it up with a reason.
3. All forms of the solution given in this thread are correct, as can be easily confirmed by substitution into the given DE.
