Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[ y_c''4y_c'+4y_c=0\]\[ \lambda^24\lambda+4=0\]\[ \lambda=2, 2\]\[y_c = c_1e^{2x}+c_2xe^{2x}\] How can I guess the particular solution?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can't do this one with undetermined cofficients. you would have to use variation of parameter.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Why doesn't undetermined coefficients work in this case??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well in undetermined cofficients there are few general forms of the solution already told.. i mean like if f(x) is e^x = Ae^ax.. and a few more like these.. know of it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1for "x" general form of its solution of yp would be Ax+B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1general for have unknown cofficients.. this one is not general form.. but this has a general for , it would be (Ax+B)e^(cx)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then how do you define ''general''??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1like for equation of a line y=mx+c.. this is general form. u ahve to find x and m.. same way in here yp = (Ax+B)e^(cx) is general form and we have to find A,B,c. th

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Some typical examples are constant  constant sin / cos  Asinx + Bcosx e^(ax) = Ce^(ax) x^n = polynomial of x But xe^(2x) is not that ''general''

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in exams we never get the straight one .. in here we have to first see if x has general for or not.. then we would see if e^2x has general form or nto.. if they both would have just miltiply them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(x e^{2x}\) still qualifies as general

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and e^(2x) / x on the other hand is not general?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in my opinion, No. because i think that x in the denominator part is the trouble here and we dont have a general form for that part. so i think variation of parameter should do the trick.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Variation of parameters: \[y''  4y' + 4y = \frac{e^{2x}}{x}\]\[y_c''  4y_c' + 4y_c =0\]\[y_c = c_1e^{2x}+c_2xe^{2x}\] \[u_1'e^{2x} + u_2' xe^{2x}=0\]\[2u_1'e^{2x} + u_2' (2xe^{2x}+e^{2x})=\frac{e^{2x}}{x}\] \[u_2'e^{2x}=\frac{e^{2x}}{x}\]\[u_2 = lnx\] \[u_1' = \frac{\frac{1}{x}xe^{2x}}{e^2x}\]\[u_1 = x\] \[y=c_1e^{2x}+c_2xe^{2x} +xlnxe^{2x}  xe^{2x}\] I can't believe that I got the solution! :O
