Solve the ODE

Use words to describe the solution process. Typeset solutions. Work is to be done without the aid of a calculator or computer. Show all steps. For example, if you integrate by parts, show all the steps of integration. If you use an integral table, state that as well. Find the solution to y''' + 2y'' + y' = 0 satisfying
