If the equation is:
then I would simply, rewrite the left side as:
separate variables, losing a trivial solution:
Obviously, though, I am missing something...
Original equation: xy'' + y' + 0. I have found that the roots are both 0, and one of the solutions is:
That solution checks. For y2, I tried using , but using P(x) = 1/x, y2 turned into:
which is not even close to the answer in the back of the book. Please advise.
