Homework Help: Differential Equation Power Series Method

  1. Mar 30, 2012 #1
    Differential Equation Power Series Method (Almost done!)

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    solve (2x-1)y'+2y=0 using power series.
    I'm really close to the correct answer, which is c/(1-2x). I keep getting 2c/(1-2x).
    I got the correct radius of convergence, however (1/2)

    2. Relevant equations
    shown in my attempt at a solution.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    attached as a png.
