Please see the attached file for the complete solution.
(i) This equation is in the standard form: y'' + y = tanx
(ii) The associated homogenous equation is y'' + y = 0
The characteristic equation is: λ2 + 1 = 0
λ1 = i and λ2 = -i
yh = c1 cos x + c2 sin x
y1 = cos x, y2 = sin x, g(x) = tanx
y1' = -sin x, y2' = cos x
(vi) yp = u1y1 + u2y2 = cos x(sin x - ln (secx + tanx)) - sin x cos x
= -cos x ...
A general solution is found to a differential equation. The solution is detailed and well-presented.
