hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i am facing problem in solving the following differential equation. help me.

y''+ayy'+b=0, where y is a function of x, 'a' & 'b' are constants.

i have tried substituting y'=u, which implies u'=u*dy/dx, these substitution change the equation to first order but i found no way ahead.
