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

Show that u=f(2x+y^2)+g(2x-y^2) satisfies the equation y^2 d^2u/dx^2 + (1/y) du/dy - d^2u/dy^2=0 where f and g are arbitrary (twice differentiable) functions.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I came up with fxx=0 fyy=2 gxx=0 gyy= 2. But didn't know if this was correct and if so what to do next. I do not want the solution but how to go about solving this problem. Thanks!
