**1. Homework Statement**

Okay so when solving a system of D.E.s using Variation of Parameters I know that first I find the complementary solution Xc and then do a bunch a of crap after that using the fundamental matrix.

Now I just came across a problem with repeated roots, so I just want to clarify that I am correct in saying that if the complementary solution looks like this:

[tex]X_c=c_1\left(\begin{array}{c}1\\1\end{array}\right)+c_2[\left(\begin{array}{c}1\\1\end{array}\right)t+\left(\begin{array}{c}1\\0\end{array}\right)][/tex]

Then the fundamental matrix looks like this:

[tex]\Phi(t)=\left(\begin{array}{cc}1 & t+1\\ 1 & t\end{array}\right)[/tex]

Just a yes or no will do..... (if it's no, I am in trouble!)

Thanks!!
