2nd order linear Differential Equations with constant coefficients.
Hi everyone

Need help with these 2 questions,got no idea how to solve.All help & support appreciated.

Solve the following differential equation

a) $2\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}-11\frac{dy}{dx}+12y=3x-2$
b) $\frac{d^2y}{dx^2}-2\frac{dy}{dx}+y=3e^{4x}$

Really hope someone can help, thank you in advance for all help & support.
