Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Must be in the form\[ay''+by'+cy=Ct ^{m}e ^{rt}\]What does C stand for? I thought it was a constant but the equation\[y''+2y'y=t ^{1}e ^{t}\]Does not satisfy this method. i assumed C=1 so it would, bu tit doesn't. Explanation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I feel like I need to plug in \[Y _{p},Y'_{p}, Y''_{p}\]into the original to solve for A. I am up to writing an equation for Yp

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh ya I forgot, when you have two diff roots you need to use two different unknowns. What about the t^s? My teacher threatened us if we forgot that on the test

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why do you have two terms in the ( ) if m=1 shouldn't there be 1. And I don't mean to come across like I'm questioning you, just trying to undersstand

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I see your Yp matches the books except I need to now solve for c and d by plugging Yp into the original equation right?.........Ok
