Solve the following initial-value problem, using variation of parameters.:
2y'' + y' - y = x + 1; y(0) = 1, y'(0) = 0
Variation of parameters: u_n' `=` W_n/W
The Attempt at a Solution
I'm posting this thread, because I'm getting a wrong particular solution (according to Wolfram Alpha), and I can't find the mistake after reviewing my work numerous times. It doesn't matter which column, I put the fundamental set of solutions (from the complementary solution), right?
My (typed) work is attached as MyWork.pdf.
Any help in finding my mistake(s) would be greatly appreciated!
