(3 points each, no partial credit) For each of the differential equations below determine the order, determine whether the differential equation is linear, and if so, whether it is homogeneous. a. t 4 d 3 x dt 3 + t dx dt - t - x 7 = 0 b. dx dt + d 7 x dt 7 = x + t 9 c. ( dx dt ) 5 + d 4 x dt 4 - t 3 x + t 7 = 0 d. x x ′′′ = x 4 x ′′ + t 5 x 2. (3 points each, no partial credit) Find all real values of α for which the given function is a solution of the given differential equation. a. x = α , d 7 x dt 7 + sin t dx dt + x - 4 = 0 b. x = α t 2 + 1 , dx dt + 2 tx 2 = 0 c. x = e αt , xx = e 2 t 3.
