    diff eq help!

    y' - y = 6te^2t
    y(0) = 1

    The solution is 6te^2t - 6e^2t -5e^t.
    Is this correct?

    no, it isn't. the "-5" is wrong. try again

    you can always check your solution. if you take your solution to be y, then you can find y' and evaluate the expression y' - y and if you get 6te^{2t} you are right, if not, you're not
