Boyu Zheng:
Solution for TUT5101
Question: Find the solution of the given initial value problem y'-2y = e^2t , y(0)=2
let p(t)=-2 and set u=e^(integral p(t)dt) then you get u = e^(-2t)
then you multiply u on each side of the standard form equation and you get
e^(-2t)y'-2e^(-2t)y = 1
then you can find the LHS is equal to (e^(-2t)y)' = 1
integral each side you get (e^-2t)y = t +C
rearrange the equation you get y=e^2t(t+C)
y(t)=(t+C)e^2t
plug in y(0)=2 and you get C=2
y can be written as y=e^2t(t+2)
