Homework Help: Solving System of Two Differential Equations

  1. Nov 6, 2013 #1
    The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find General Solution of the Following System

    (2D+5)x - (2D+3)y = t

    (D-2)x + (D+2)y = 0

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/32294083/Emath/New%20Doc%203_1.jpg [Broken]

    Using the Quadratic Formula I get nothing so I am not sure what the complementary solution is.

    After this what do I do to find the General Solution?

    Start over: your "characteristic equation" is wrong, so far as I can make out. You really should type this stuff out; your writing is borderline unreadable.
