## Homework Statement

Hi there, I have an assignment which involves using reduction of order to solve for a second solution to an ode (the one attached). However this is a method I am new to, and though I have tried several times, I'm somehow getting something wrong because the LHS and RHS are not matching up, that is, when I substitue in the solution I have found, the RHS does not equal zero as it should.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have attached my working (Sides 1 and 2), if anyone could point out what I'm doing wrong it would be greatly appreciated, this is driving me nuts!
