Given an ODE in the form of f(t)y''+g(t)y'+h(t)y=0(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If all I am looking for is the y(t) at a specific value of t and NOT the general solution, can I just plug in that value of t into the original ODE and then solve it analytically or is a numeric solution the only way?
