1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the general solution y"+3y'+2y=0 2. Relevant equations y(t) =c_1e^r_1t + c_2e^r_2t 3. The attempt at a solution a=1 b=3 c=2 r^2+3r+2=0 (r+2)(r+1)=0 r_1=-2 r_2=-1 General solution: y(t) =c_1e^(-2t)+c_2e^(-t) I was wondering if the order mattered. The answer in the book is y(t)=c_1e^(-t)+c_2e^(-2t) I don't think that it does, but I want to make sure before continuing and submitting my hw. If the order DOES matter, how can I get the correct order? Thank you.
