    Must 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?

    I believe that the method only applies for \(m\geq0\), but I cannot recall to save my life.

    Ok @UnkleRhaukus I could use a little help on my last problem of the night. I posted the question in this stream 3rd from the top.

    \[Y _{p}= t(Ae ^{-3t})\]Do I have to include the other root as well?

    I 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

    Oh 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

    As i understand it t^s, where s is the multiplicity of your roots needs to be out in front.

    Why 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

    So 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
