Given the following differential equation

t^3y''' - t^2y'' + 2ty' - 2y = 0; t > 0

Find a solution that satisfies differential equation and the initial conditions

y(1) = 3; y'(1) = 2; y''(1) = 1

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried plugging in 1 for y, y' and y'', but that gave me t^3y'''-t^2+2t-2=0, which doesn't give me anything... i looked in the book but still am positively stumped... Please help.
