I'm working on this equation and I think I remember how to do it, but my notes from this class are so scattered and I can't seem to find the section in my textbook.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

the problem is:

y^{(4)}-4y" = 16e^{2x}

can someone help me out with just getting started? Doesn't it have something to do with letting w=y" and w"=y^{4}?
