Homework Help: Using reduction of order for Non-Homogenous DE

  1. Apr 10, 2008 #1
    I need help solving a higher order differential equation by reduction of order.
    It will be greatly appreciated if all steps are posted as well!

    y(Double Prime)-3y(Prime)+2y=5e^3x where y sub one =e^x.

    Ive tried to get the answer but end up with 3 constants.

    the teachers example goes from w to u prime to u without integrating u prime to get u, where w=u prime and y=u*y(sub one)
