Differential equations with matrices and eigenvalues?

  1. Nov 16, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    this is the homework that i have to do

    3. The attempt at a solution
    im not really sure if this is the right method but i will solve it like if it was a homogeneous equation by setting the right side equal to 0
    then one i have that i would solve for roots
    once that i would solve for constants and get final equation to be something as y=c1e^x1+c2e^x2

    but i dont think that sounds right because im not really finding rt) and last part professor hasn't really covered how to do this sort of thing with matrices i know how to solve for eigenvalues but i dont know how to get it to that point or how do you go about working out that problem

    if only i know what i should be studying for or looking for i would be able to solve it but i been looking everywhere and cant find anything to help me out with it

    i appreciate any help =D
