# Diff eqn problem

1. Sep 7, 2006

well im confused on what the problem is saying:

"For what value(s) of the constant (lamda) will y = exp((lamda)x) be a solution of the given differential equation? If there are no such (lamda)'s, state that."

what the hell is y = exp? if exp is an exponent, would that, differentiated, be 0?

any help would be appreciated :)
