A third-order differential equation is given;(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

ax^3 y''' + bx^2 y'' + cxy' + dy = f(x)

a)Generalize the method for the euler equation to the third-order equation

b)Find the general solution of the third order ordinary differential equation for the following coefficients and right hand side function, f(x);

a=1,b=2,c=3,d=4 and f(x)=ln(3x^2) + ln(x) + x^3 + 5
