Group Title
Solve using variation of parameters
\[y''y'=e^x\]
\[r^2r=0\]
\[r_1=r_2=1\]
\[y_c=c_1e^x+c_2xe^x\]
\[W(y_1,y_2)=0\]
Is that possible?

right, now I get a bit dicey.... since you have e^x on the RHS as well I feel you may need to multiply this by x to keep it linearly independent

or do you do it to the particular instead? hm... well normally you do it to the whole RHS particular, but since you need the complimentary for the particular in VP I'm not sure...

yehh just tell me equation i ll take out solution. as y complimentary is solved i ll solve for y particular
 2 years ago

TuringTest Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
Our problem is that the solutions to the complimentary are not independent from the particular, which you can tell since we got W=0 on our first try

do you think my W is right? x^2 e^x
 2 years ago

TuringTest Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
that I doube @MathSofiya because we have e^x on both left and right our solutions are linearly dependet (that means we can't solve it yet) so maybe if we multiply the g(x) by x ? not sure, but worth a try

yeah that's what I had

TuringTest Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
that I am not sure, but based on our attempt to use the second one failing I would now try the first (we are discovering this together right now :)
 2 years ago

TuringTest Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
however if we are to try the first we need to multiply g(x) by x (I'm thinking....)

so let's try that

can you explain the g(x) concept again and why it being e^x would be a problem because that cancels something out?...
 2 years ago

TuringTest Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
no I think that is wrong because that leads to the particular having\[\int\frac{e^x}dxx\]

TuringTest Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
okay. then we have a set of vectors (in this case equations) if their determinant is zero we know they are linearly dependent

for y particular
 2 years ago

TuringTest Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
that is a bad thing in DE's we need all of our solutions to be linearly independent, so the determinant of the solutions, (the wronskian) must not be zero, otherwise our solutions are linearly dependent
 2 years ago

wasiqss Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so as the denominator becomes zero

HENCE we get zero in denominator
 2 years ago

TuringTest Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
anyway... to keep the particular linearly independent from the complimentary we often need to multiply by x, so that is what I am thinking must happen somehow @lalaly will confirm if I am making any sense or not now

actually no need to multiply by x at all\[y_c=c_1+c_2e^x\]\[W=e^x\]\[y_p=\int e^{x}+e^x\int dx=e^x+xe^x\]\[y_p=e^x+xe^x\]\[y=y_c+y_p=c_1+c_2e^x+e^x+xe^x=c_1+e^x(1+x+c_2)\]and yes, but is your solution in 5 lines?

I don't understand part of the very end of your post, near the solutions. I'll come back and ask about it later, but I do not understand how you obeyed the laws of calculus in factoring out an e^x when integrating with respect to x.
