x^2 y'' - (x^2 + 2x)y' + (x + 2) y = 0

i am supposed to find the 2 independent solutions for this equation but i'm not sure which method to use. i was going to use the methof of solving cauchy-euler equations but i got stuck

It was mentioned (very briefly) in my first post that I was going to use reduction of order.
