    Hi John, :welcome:

    You really want to
    • post in the homework forum
    • use the template
    • read and follow the guidelines
    I hope this reaches you before the mentors lash out: What's the difference between your solution and the given / book solution ?

    I moved the thread to our homework section.

    Check your integration of 2x e2x, for example by calculating the derivative of what you used as integral.

    The equation you wrote already is a differential equation.
    Based on the answer, the problem seems to be asking you to solve the differential equation.
