Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is a nonhomogeneous differential equation with constant equation. It has a solution of the form: \[y(x)=y_c+y_p\] where y_c is the complementary solution associated with its homogeneous equation, and y_p is the particular solution.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To find y_c, we just have to solve the auxiliary equation associated with the homogeneous equation, that's: \[m^44m^3+4m^2=0 \implies m^2(m2)^2=0\] Which has double roots of 0 and 2. Then: \[y_c=c_1+c_2x+c_3e^{2x}+c_4xe^{2x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, let's assume a particular solution Ae^(2x), substitute in the original differential equation: \[16Ae^{2x}4(8Ae^{2x})+4(4Ae^{2x})=128e^{2x} \implies 16A+36A+16A=128\] and hence A=2, therefore the particular solution is: \[y_p=2e^{2x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Therefore the general solution is: \[y=c_1+c_2x+c_3e^{2x}+c_4xe^{2x}+2e^{2x}\] Now, use the given initial conditions to find the constants c_1, c_2,c_3 and c_4.
