1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Okay, I guess I just don't understand what this question is actually asking for. If you could possible explain better what they are looking for, what it means, and possible what direction to go in I'd really appreciate it. a) Find the general solution to the system: x1'=x1+2x2 x2'=2x1+x2 b) Find the specific solution that satisfies x1(0)=1; x2(0)=1 3. The attempt at a solution A) Do I simply put it reduced row echelon form and then show that it comes out as an identity matrix? B) I'm just confused on what they are asking, do I plug 0 in for x1 and 0 for x2 and then just say x1' and x2' are zero? That seems unlikely to be correct. Any input would be very helpful, I know you guys do this in your spare time and it's very much appreciated.
