## Homework Statement

Classify the equation and use the change of variables to change the equation to the form with no mixed second order derivative. u_{xx}+6u_{xy}+5u{yy}-4u{x}+2u=0

## Homework Equations

I know that it's of the hyperbollic form by equation a_{12}^2 - a_{11}*a_{22}, which gives 4 >0 so it's hyperbollic.

## The Attempt at a Solution

What I don't understand is how to get started on changing the form to something with no second order derivatives. My book used a matrix method but shows no examples. Could I have a tip for where to get started? Thanks!
