Time allowed – 2 hours Directions – This is a closed book exam. You may write on the front and back of the exam papers. Student Name: Student Number: To solve y ′ + p ( x ) y = g ( x ) , y ( x ) = y , let μ = exp ( integraltext x x pdx ). Then, y = 1 μ ( y + integraltext x x μgdx ). Question No. (mark) Marks 1 (10) 2 (10) 3 (10) 4 (10) 5 (10) 6 (10) 7 (10) 8 (10) Total Question 1 Score: (a) (8 pts) Find the solution of the following ode for y = y ( x ) that passes through the origin ( y (0) = 0): e x − y y ′ + e y − x = 0 . (b) (2 pts) For what values of x does the solution exist? Question 2 Score: (a) (8 pts) Find the solution y = y ( x ) with x > 0 of xy ′ + (1 + x ) y = xe − x , y (1) = 0 . (b) (2 pts) Find the cubic equation whose positive root is the value of x at which y ( x ) is maximum. Question 3...
