Hi there. It's going to be my finals in about 4 hours and while reviewing, I came across the equation above. I spent 2 hours trying to crack it but I just can't seem to get anywhere with the method my professor taught me. Can anyone give me a very detailed step by step on this one. Oh and if its not too much can anyone give me a similar equation example. Thanks

By the way the final answer on the equation above is

2

25x' - 11x' + 2y' =0.

I need to know how its derived.
