I'm having a couple problems with my diff eq assignment if anyone can help me. The problem is 1. (a) show that the diff eq. for y=c1u1(x) + c2u2(x), where u1(x) and u2(x) are functions which are at least twice differentiable, may be written in determinant form as(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

| y u1(x) u2(x) |

| y u1'(x) u2'(x) | = 0

| y u1''(x) u2''(x)|

b) what happens in the case where

w = | u1(x) u2(x) | = 0

| u1'(x) u2'(x)|
