Consider the ODE

dy/dx + 0.6y = 0.5e^(-(1.1)x) , y(0) = 4

solve the ODE subject to the given condition using exact methods and evaluate the solution y for x = 0.0 (0.05) 0.5, (i.e from x = 0 to x = 0.5 in steps of 0.05)

I am terrible with ODEs and would greatly appreciate help in rearranging and staring off this question. Im sure its not terribly difficult but to me it is. Thanks in advance.

Well, it's linear so start by finding an integrating factor.
