Title should read "Combining", is there anyway a moderator could alter that so the search function isn't messed up? 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 3. The attempt at a solution I am familiar with both methods, however combining the two is foreign to me. Anyone have any suggestions for this ODE? My guess would be to use the VOP method for the (1/x)*e^x portion and the undetermined coefficients for the 4x^2-3 portion. Any pointers?
