So the differential equation I have to solve using power series is(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

y''-xy=0 when x0 = -1

So i set it up

Ʃ(n+2)(n+1)a_{n+2}(x+1)^{n}- x Ʃ a_{n}(x+1)^{n}

I know how to generally solve equations like this, but I never solved one like this, where I have to distribute the x ... x(x+1)^{n}... I just need to figure this part out (I know I left out the n=0 to ∞)
