Higher Order Linear Equations
2. We will rst rewrite the equation as y + (sin t/t)y + (3/t)y = cos t/t. Since
the coecient functions p1 (t) = sin t/t, p2 (t) = 3/t and g(t) = cos t/t are continuous
for all t = 0, the solution is sure to exis

3. Let y = ert , so that y = r ert and y = r2 ert . Direct substitution into the
dierential equation yields (6r2 r 1)ert = 0 . Since ert = 0, the characteristic
equation is 6r2 r 1 = 0 . The roots of the equatio
