how to solve it?
i was told to show first that x and e^x are a solution of some homogeneous equation
i got that it the homogeneous equation?
but the partivular solution is tough
its hard to differentiate every time
Variation of parameters - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
since you are given the solutions to the homogeneous problem, we can solve for the particular solution.
1st. Put equation is standard form
2st. Assume solution of the form
3nd.Calculate the Wronskian
Putting all of this together gives
