Hello everyone, I got part's A and B of this problem, but now they are asking me to find the wornskin of W(y1,y2) and i'm confused on what they want, i understand that y1y2' - y1'y2, if that equals 0 then its L.D. if its != 0, then its L.I. Here are the directions:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the function y_1 of t which is the solution of

100y'' + 120y' + 27y = 0

with initial conditions y_1(0) = 1, y_1'(0) = 0 .

y_1 = http://cwcsrv11.cwc.psu.edu/webwork2_files/tmp/equations/40/88fc47fa3bd23be02e062229fe21811.png [Broken]

Find the function y_2 of t which is the solution of

100y'' + 120y' + 27y = 0

with initial conditions y_2(0) = 0, y_2'(0) = 1 .

y_2 =http://cwcsrv11.cwc.psu.edu/webwork2_files/tmp/equations/2f/37d355db301374c3ea8042d569295d1.png [Broken]

Find the Wronskian

W(t) = W(y_1,y_2).

W(t) =

This is what I did but now i'm stuck on what i'm suppose to do next:
