    Particular integral, Matrix method

    Hi

    I have found the complementary function but I am not sure how to work out the particluar integral. Here are the equations

    <br />
\dot{x}=3x+8y-2t <br />
    <br />
\dot{y}=-5x+-10y+1<br />

    Which is

    <br />
\left[\begin{array}{c} \dot{x}\\<br />
 \dot{y}\end{array}\right]=\left[\begin{array}{cc}<br />
 3 & 8\\<br />
 -5 & -10\end{array}\right]\cdot\left[\begin{array}{c}<br />
 x\\<br />
 y\end{array}\right]+\left[\begin{array}{c}<br />
 -2t\\<br />
 1\end{array}\right]<br />

    I have solved the complementary function

    <br />
\left[\begin{array}{c}<br />
x\\<br />
y\end{array}\right]=\alpha\left[\begin{array}{c}<br />
 1\\<br />
 -5/8\end{array}\right]e^{-2t}+\beta\left[\begin{array}{c}<br />
1\\<br />
-1\end{array}\right]e^{-5t}<br /> <br />

    But I am not sure how to solve for the particular integral, any ideas

    Thanks

    Use variation of parameter by substituting:

    \left(\begin{array}{c} x \\ y\end{array}\right)_p=\alpha(t)\left(\begin{array}  {c} 1 \\-5/8\end{array}\right)e^{-2t}+\beta(t)\left(\begin{array}{c} 1 \\ -1\end{array}\right)e^{-5t}

    into:

    \left(\begin{array}{c} x \\ y\end{array}\right)^{'}=\left(\begin{array}{cc} 3 & 8 \\ -5 & -10\end{array}\right)\left(\begin{array}{c} x \\ y\end{array}\right)+\left(\begin{array}{c} -2t \\ 1\end{array}\right)

    obtaining a system of two equations in the unknowns \alpha'(t) and \beta'(t) which you can solve for each by elementary means.

    Please excuse me for being dumb, but could you elaborate.
