(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Derived the general solution of the given equation by using an appropriate change of variables

5.) du/dt-2(du/dx)=2

2. Relevant equations

du/dx=du/d(alpha)*d(alpha)/dx+du/d(beta)*d(beta)/dx

du/dt= du/d(alpha)*d(alpha)/dt+du/d(beta)*d(beta)/dt

3. The attempt at a solution

not really sure how to determine du/d(alpha),d(alpha)/dx,d(beta)/dx ,d(alpha)/dt,d(beta)/dt

book says alpha=x+2t, beta=x
