Variation of Parameters Question

  1. Nov 12, 2008 #1
    Question is attached as Clipboard01.jpg

    I have tried the use Variation of Parameters to solve this question, but I kept getting wrong answer.
    This is What I get y=(2e^x)(Cos(e^x))+0.5(e^(-x))Cos(e^(-x))-2Sin(e^(-x))
    This is the right answer: y=-Sin(e^(-x))-(e^x)Cos(e^(-x))

    Procedure is shown in the second jpg file
    Can someone help me with this problem?
    Thank You
