(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

[tex]y''x^{2}[/tex] + 4xy' -y = ln(x)

3. The attempt at a solution

-I considered the quadratic characteristic equation, but it wont work because of the x^2

-I also tried variation of parameters.

so i have v = y' and v'=y'' but i have no idea what i would sub when I get to y.

any ideas?
