    This question is concerned with finding the solutions of the second order simultaneous equations

    where a = 38, b = -9, c = 378, d = -79

    (i) Find the particular solutions to the differential equations which satisfy the initial conditions x = -10 and y = 7 at t = 0
    together with the condition at t = 0..
    For this part of the question give x as a function of t.
    Omit the "x = " (8 marks)

    Your Answer: -77(cos(4t))+ 67(cos(5t))
    Comment: The particular solution required in this part is x = ""

    (ii) What is y as a function of t.
    Omit the "y = "
    (8 marks)

    Your Answer: -462(cos(4t))+ 469(cos(5t))
    Comment: The particular solution required in this part is y = ""

    (iii) What is the value of x at t = 0.56?
    Give your answer to AT LEAST TWO PLACES OF DECIMALS. Put in this value only ie. Omit the "x = " (2 marks)
    Your Answer: -15.36105271
    Comment: x = -15.36105271

    (iv) What is the value of y at t = 0.56?
    Give your answer to AT LEAST TWO PLACES OF DECIMALS. Put in this value only ie. Omit the "y = " (2 marks)
    Your Answer: -155.2952131
    Comment: y = -155.2952131

    Question 1: (Normal Modes)
    This question is concerned with finding the solutions of the second order simultaneous equations

    where a = 38, b = - 9 , c = 378, d = - 79 . The initial conditions are

    together with the conditions

    Note:
    In my opinion, to solve this kind of problem, using Laplace transform is the simplest and the most universal method in solving most of differential equations. Let me briefly review some properties of Laplace transform (used in this question) for you.
    Denote that and . The Laplace transform of the first order derivative is

    Using the Laplace transform of , the Laplace transform of the second order derivative can be found as

    Let us consider the second order simultaneous differential equations in this question,
    (1)
    (2)
    Take Laplace transform on both sides of both ...
