  1. Solving Homogeneous Linear Second Order Differential Equations
    Find some general solutions to the following constant coefficient homogeneous linear second order differential equation:

    2y+5y3y=02y''+5y'-3y=0
    1. Using the initial conditions find a particular solution to the following differential equation:

      y+3y4y=0y''+3y'-4y=0
      y(0)=3,y(0)=2y(0)=3, y' (0)=-2
