i have to solve the following differential equation :(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

dy/ dx + y = f(x) where f (x) = 2, 0 <= x < 1 and 0 if x >=1

and y (0)=0.

please explain how to solve it as it involves a discontinuous function ?

I am stuck while computing after computing the integrating factor e^x. Please suggest how to proceed beyond this.
