example:

y''-3y'+2y=0

Factoring the auxiliary equation

m^2-3m+2=0=(m-1)(m-2)

is there some kind of convention as to which gets named as m1 and m2?

It seems like every time I do one of these kinds of problems, my answer is the opposite of the books. Is there any difference between

y=c1e^(x)+c2e^(2x) and y=c1e^(2x)+c2e^(x)?
