Consider the differential equation

Find a general solution to this differential equation that has the form

.

.

.

y = Cx^{3}

Find a second solution that might not be a general solution and which may have a different value of n than your first solution.

3. The attempt at a solution

I solved the first part of the problem

y = Cx^{3}

But am at a complete loss for how to find a second explicit solution without being given an initial value.
