Ly ≡ (x +1)^2y′′− 4(x +1)y′+6y =0(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

given y[1]=(x+1)^2 is a solution, use the ansatz y2(x)= u(x)(x+1)2 to reduce

the order of the diﬀerential equation and ﬁnd a second independent solution y2

how to reduce !? and i can't find u ....can't solve (x+1)^2u''+6u=0

please help!!

thx!
