Solution Summary

This solution shows how to determine the general solution with a step-by-step explanation.

Solution Preview

The homogeneous part of the equation is:
y" + y = 0

and the associated characteristic equation is r^2 + 1 = 0

So the roots are r1 = -i, and r2 = i

Therefore, the solution to the homogeneous part is

yh = ...
