Hi there,

I have a question that states:

Obtain the general solution of by factorizing L into two first order linear operators.

My thoughts on what to do, is it divide through by t, then make = y, = y' and = y''.

That makes . Then solve for this first order DE. Once finding a solution to that DE, replace y'' with the answer, than solve the first order linear equation then.

I was wondering whether my thought process was right. Is my method correct?

Thanks for your time.
