Can someone please help me, show how you find the solution: y = -πt^(-1)cos(4t) For the problem: Given that y = t^(-1)sin4t is a solution of ty'' + 2y' +16ty =0, find and graph the solution of the equation that satisfies y(π/8) = 0 and y'(π/8) = 32. Thank you.

    when you plug in pi/8 in y you get zero, and pi/8 in y' you get 32, so it does prove the facts provided

    Thank you, but that does not explain how you get the other solution: y = -πt^(-1)cos(4t)
