Make sure you write down both an equation and an initial condition that Q ( t ) must satisfy. 5. (15 points) Find the solution of the following initial value problem using the method of undetermined coecients: y 00-4 y + 3 y = t 2 + te 3 t , y (0) = 1 , y (0) = 0 . 6. (10 points) Use the method of reduction of order to nd a second solution of the dierential equation: t 2 y 00 + 2 ty-6 y = 0 , t > , knowing that y 1 ( t ) = t 2 is a solution. What is the general solution of the above equation? 7. (10 points) Find so that the solution to the initial value problem y 00 + 3 y-4 y = 0 ,y (0) = ,y (0) = 1 , converges to 0 as t + ....
