    Every second order linear homogeneous equation with linear coefficients \[ y'' + ay' + by = 0 \] has a two dimensional solution space. That is, there exist two linearly independent solutions to the equation. If we call them y_1 and y_2, then the general solution of the equation is \[ y = c_1y_1 + c_2y_2 \] Hence, for your problem, it is sufficient to show that 1. cos x and sin x are solutions of the differential equation; and 2. cos x and sin x are linearly independent You can show number 1 by just showing cos x and sin x satisfy the differential equation. Number 2 I leave to you.
