Is this how you solve it.

1) Identify if its parabolic/hyperbolic/elliptic etc

2) Find the charatertics coordinates

3) Using the Initial condition, find the charatertics cooridnates for them

4) sketch the charatertics coodinates in terms of x and t?

Thank you

d'Alembert's formula gives us a simple solution when the intial velocity is zero.

where

is the intial condition. In you equation c=1 so this gives the solution

This probably is not the best notation LOL.
