Hey guys! I was assigned some work this weekend in my Applied Math I class where we are doing DEs.

This question is a two part problem. I understand how to do the second part, but I'm getting stuck on the first part.

The question is...

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

Here is an image of my work.... I was wondering if I can get some guidance, see where/if I'm going wrong. Under the dotted line is to check my work, but I can't get it to equal zero...
