# Nonhomogeneous initial-value problem

Please show all steps to solution.

a) Find a particular solution to the nonhomogeneous equation y''''-y'''-y''-y'-2y=8x^5

Write out the general solution.

b) Use the solution to problem A to solve the initial-value problem y''''-y'''-y''-y'-2y=8x^5

where y(0)=y'(0)=y''(0)=y'''(0)=y''''(0)=5
