Use reduction of order to find a second solution to a differential equation.

Given that y1(x)=e^-x is a solution of y'' + 2y' + y =0, find second solution using the method of reduction of order. I substituted y =ve^-x so y' = v'e^-x - v^-x; y''= v''e^-x -v'e^-x +v e^-x I came out of that with v''e^-x + v'e^-x =0 I think the next step is to seperate variables.
