    Re: solving ODE with series

    Start by writing \displaystyle \begin{align*} y = \sum_{n = 0}^{\infty}a_nx^n \end{align*} and substituting into the series. What could we then write \displaystyle \begin{align*} y' \end{align*} and \displaystyle \begin{align*} y'' \end{align*} as? Can you substitute these into the ODE and simplify?
