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

d2y/dx2-dy/dx+y*exp(2x) = x*exp(2x)-1

substitute t=exp(x) and set z(t)=y(x) and rewrite hence find all solutions

3. The attempt at a solution

Rewriting gives:

d2z/dt2-dz/dt+z*t^2=(ln(t) * t^2) - 1

however I dont see how this in any way helps us...
