Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0O.k I see that, so my answers should be 2, 2, 2, 2 right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since there are no 4rt(...) to worry about, you dont need to include and 0i parts

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0at first i just found the +and  2 as a multiple of four

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but then I saw the difference of squares and thought, o.k there are complex numbers so its gonna be different

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(2i)^4 = 16.i^2.i^2 = 16 i tend to get lost with that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i first got y(x)= c1e^(2x)+c2xe^2x+c3x^2e^2x+c4x^3e^2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what grade are you in

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but if i take the complex numbers, then I would get y(x) = c1e^2x + c2e^2x + c3cos 2x + c4sin 2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you know how to factor a difference of squares?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, I was just wondering if I would to take the Nth root how the question is then I would get +and 2 as a multiple of 4, but at the same time if I do the difference of squares then I will get complex numbers. Ijust want to understand if both answers would be right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think since the questions asks to find the general solution to the differential equation, you have to include the complex number as part of your solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well I will just factor first before I try to solve, that way I can find all the solutions. Thanks for the help though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you would still get same thing...2, 2, 2i, 2i
