    Exclamation Solution by undetermined coefficients

    I got one more differential eq. which I am unsure of....

    Solution by undetermined coefficients:
    Find a (real) general solution. Which rule are you using?

    y^{''}-y^{'}-2y=3e^{2x}

    Thanks!

    Since y = a e^{2x} is part of the homogenous solution you must use a particular solution of the form y_p = a x e^{2x}.
