Math 222, Quiz 8 Name: Instructions: Answer the following questions fully, showing work where necessary. 1) Solve the following equation, Fnding the particular solution by “guess- ing”: y ′′ + 2 y + 1 = e x The complementary equation is y ′′ + 2 y + 1 = 0. The auxillary equa- tion to this is r 2 + 2 r + 1 = 0. This factors as ( r + 1) 2 = 0, so that the complementary equation is c 1 e x + c 2 xe x . Since 1 is not a root of the auxillary equation, our “guess” should be Ae x . Plugging this in, you should Fnd A = 1 4 . Thus, the particular solution is 1 4 e x . 2) Now solve the equation by Fnding the particular solution by variation of parameters (obviously, you don’t need to Fnd the complementary solution

Thus, we have to solve the equations: v 1 e x + v 2 xe x = 0 v 1 (-e x ) + v 2 ( e x-xe x ) = e x Solving this gives v 1 =-xe 2 x and v 2 = e 2 x . Then v 1 =-xe 2 x 2 + e 2 x 4 and v 2 = e 2 x 2 . Then y p = v 1 y 1 + v 2 y 2 = e x 4 , as above. Bonus (1 pt.): What book is currently number one on the New York Times NonFction best seller list?
