1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Consider the differential equation \bold{x}'=\left[ \begin{array}{cc} 1 & 2 \\ 1 & 3 \end{array} \right]\bold{x}, with \bold{x}(0)=\left[ \begin{array}{c} 1 \\ 1 \end{array} \right] Solve the differential equation where \bold{x}=\left[ \begin{array}{c} x(t) \\ y(t) \end{array} \right]. solving for the x vector and y vector 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution
