We sort of blew through this chapter, so I'm not sure how to do this: For what values of r does the function satisfy the differential equation ? Would I literally just derive it and solve for r? Seems really messy.

That gave me the answer but... Why did you just replace y' with r and move the function to the outside?
He didn't. With , . He replaced y' with that and factored out.
