<br>y^3 - 2y^2 + y^1 = 2- 24e^(x) + 40e^(5x) ....(1)
<br>
<br>
<br>First set the right side equal to 0 and find the solution as in the
<br>case of a homogeneous equation (this is called complementary function
<br>y1) and then by trial find a particular solution (particular integral
<br>y2)
<br>
<br>Now the general solution is given by,
<br>
<br> Y = y1 + y2
<br>
<br>First evaluate y1
<br>................
<br>
<br>y^3 - 2y^2 + y^1 = 0
<br>
<br>ie, y (y^2 - ...
