    Question about deleting a value of x.

    Hi

    The Problem :



    I know how to solve the problem, but my question is why x \neq 0. ?

    What is the reason ?
    Is there a theoretically answer? knowing that it has been solved using Reduction of Order Method.

    The problem also becomes first-order if x = 0.
