    hey that is y''+2y'+1=0 ? right? y''+2y'=-1 \[y=Ax^2+Bx+C\] \[y'=2Ax+B\] \[y''=2A\] Plug this in we get \[2A+2(2Ax+B)=-1\] WE need to find what A and B are ? 4Ax+2B+2A=-1 according to what this equation A and B should be what? Also when we are done with this we need to find the solution to y''+2y'=0

    can I just substitute y'' and y' with \[r^{2}\] and solve this quadratic equation \[r^{2}+2r+1=0\] where r=-1 and then \[y_{1}(t)=e^{-1t} y_{2}(t)=e^{-1t}\] so \[c_{1}e^{-1t}+c_{2}e^{-1t}=y(t)\] and then substitute initial values?

    so it's non-homogeneous I guess?

    you could tackle it like y''+2y'=-1 with undetermined coefficients or something I bet
