#### Solution Preview

Homogeneous Solution:

Aux. equation is: m^2 + 6m +13 = 0
m = (1/2)[-6 (+/-) sqrt(36-52) = -3 (+/-) i2

Two complex roots, m1 = -3+i2 and m2 = -3-i2

Hence, the homo. solution is:

yh(t) = e^(-3t) * [C1*Cos 2t + C2*Sin 2t]

Particular Solution:

Forcing function = te^(-t)
So, solution should ...
