**[SOLVED] differential equation**

## Homework Statement

x y' +x^2 y'' = k^2 y

where y=y(x), k is constant.

How do you prove that x^r, where r is a real number form a basis for that differential equation? They are obviously linearly independent. But how do you prove that they span the solution space?
