Therefore, r 1 =- 4 and r 2 = 3 , and hence y h = c 1 e 4 x + c 2 e 3 x . Now, 1 = y (0) = c 1 + c 2 and since y h =- 4 c 1 e 4 x- 3 c 2 e 3 x , we get- 1 = y h (0) =- 4 c 1 + 3 c 2 . Solving the linear system braceleftBigg c 1 + c 2 = 1- 4 c 1 + 3 c 2 =- 1 gives c 1 = 4 / 7 and c 2 = 3 / 7 . Therefore, D) is the answer. 2. The auxiliary equation is ( r- 3) 2 = 0 , so r = 3 is a repeated root and y h = c 1 e 3 x + c 2 xe 3 x . Since r = 0 is not a root, and the right hand side of the differential equation has degree zero, y p has the form y p = A , which is an arbitrary polynomial of degree zero. Since y p = 0 and y p = 0, putting these into the differential equation gives 9 A = 3 so A = 1 / 3 . Therefore, y = y p + y h = 1 3 + c 1 e 3 x + c 2 xe 3 x is the general solution to the given non-homogeneous differential equation. Now apply the initial conditions.differential equation....
