requirethat c = 1 with x = 1, but 6 = —l with x = —1. (b) The fact that W(yl, y2) = O everywhere does not contradict Theorem 3, because
when the given equation is written in the required form y" — (3/x)y' + (3/x2)y = o,
the coefﬁcient functions p(x) = —3/x and q(x) = 3/x2 are not continuous at x = 0. W021, y2) = —2x vanishes at x = 0, whereas if y] and y; were (linearly independent)
solutions of an equation y" + py' + qy = 0 with p and q both continuous on an open
interval I containing x = 0, then Theorem 3 would imply that Wat 0 on I. (a) The substitution v = In x gives '_d_y dlﬂ _ ld_y

y(x) = cle"”+c2e’2v = c1(e") +c2 (ev) =c1x"+c2x”. Section 3.2 14. Imposition of the initial conditions y(0) = O, y'(0) = 0, y"(0) = 3 on the general solution
y(x) = cle’ + czez" + c3e3" yields the three equations c1+c2+c3=1, cl+202+3c3=2, c1+4c2+9c3=0 with solution cl = 3/ 2, c2 = — 3, c3 = 3/ 2. Hence the desired particular solution is
given by y(x) = (3ex — 6e” + 3e3")/2. 21. Imposition of the initial conditions y(0) = 2, y’(0) = — 2 on the general solution
y(x) = c] cosx + c2 sinx + 3x yields the twO equations cl = 2, c2 + 3 = — 2 with
solution c1 = 2, c2 = — 5. Hence the desired particular solution is given by
y(x) = 2 cosx  5 sinx + 3x. 28. If you differentiate the equation c0 + clx + czx2 +~+ cnx" = 0 repeatedly, n times in
succession, the result is the system 2 n _

coefﬁcients must vanish. 37. When we substitute y = vx3 in the given differential equation and simplify, we get the
separable equation xv" + v' = 0 that we solve by writing ——1— => lnv’=—lnx+lnA,
