(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find a particular solution Yp of the given equation. Primes denote deriviate with respect to x

(method of flexible guess)

2. Relevant equations

4y''+4y'+y=3xe^x

3. The attempt at a solution

when I used y=Ae^x as guess my A depended on x

So y=Axe^x gave me 12A+9Ax=3x

12A=0

9Ax=3x

does not work,

Before I go on to trying y=Ax^2e^x am I doing this right?
