Does the following differential equation not have a solution for A, and is B = -1 in the general solution ?

$\displaystyle \frac{d^2y}{dx^2} + \frac{dy}{dx} - 2y = 2-2e^{-2x}$

Also does the general solution of the following differential equation look anything like what I've given?

diff eqn: $\displaystyle \frac{dy}{dx} + \frac{2y}{x} = 4x$

gen eqn: $\displaystyle y=x^2 + \frac{c}{x^2}$ , where $\displaystyle p(x) = x^2$

Thank you all for your help.
