    at first I had r^2+r=0 and that gave me the integral of \[\int\frac{e^{-x}sec^2x}{e^{-x}}dx+e^{-x}\int \frac{sec^2x}{e^{-x}}dx\]

    a simple look suggests that last term carries an Integration sign whereas the second last term does not, it cant be both , either we have an integral sign or we dont. Anyways its better to teach something correctly : )

    very true \[y=y_c+y_p=c_1cosx+c_2sinx-cosxsecx+sinx\int cosxsec^2xdx\]

    is this really the solution to the integral? http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=integral+of+cosxsec^2x

    most people use ln(tan(x) +sec(x)) for brevity

    programs always give the other form of the answer; not sure why, probably to confound students.
