Use power series to solve the differential equation
\[(x1)y''+y'=0\]
\[y=\sum_{n=0}^\infty a_nx^n\]
\[y'=\sum_{n=1}^\infty na_nx^{n1}\]
\[y''=\sum_{n=2}^\infty n(n1)a_nx^{n2}\]
\[(x1)\sum_{n=2}^\infty n(n1)a_nx^{n2}+\sum_{n=1}^\infty na_nx^{n1}=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so when we strip out a term on \[\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}n(n+1)a_{n+1}x^n\] for the sum to start at n=0 would I have... \[a_0+ \sum_{n=0}^\infty n(n+1)a_{n+1}x^n \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no that would be \[a_0+ \sum_{n=1}^\infty n(n+1)a_{n+1}x^n\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(n+1)nan+1(n+2)(n+1)an+2+(n+1)an+1=0 an+2=(n+1)/(n+2) an+1 an+2=a1/(n+2) one answer is just a0(check it out) y=a0+a1sigma(n=1 to inf)(x^n/n)
