Hi, I have a Calculus test coming up and am very confused on how to start approching these types of problems (initial value problems) If possible can someone work these 2 different types of problems out and show some work so I know how to proceed with the rest of them? I don't think they are that hard, for some reason I'm just confused. Thanks(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Problem 1: y' + 5y = t, y(0) = 0

Problem 2: y' = y/sqrt(t), y(1) = -1

Thanks again for all those who help!
