Can anyone offer some advice on this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Obtain a general solution for the second order differential equation:

(d^2x/dx^2) - (dx/dt) - 2x = 10sint

I obtained the general solution and now need to determine the "solution which remains finite as t tends to infinity for which x=4 at t=0. Could anyone suggest how I may approach this

My general solution was:

G(x)= Ae^2x + Be^-x + cost - 3sint

Thanks for any help,

Joe
