Solve by method of variation of parameters(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(x^2)y'' - (4x)y' + 6y = x^4*sinx (x > 0)

Hey, I know how to solve problems using variation of parameters but only when the corresponding homogenous equation has constant coefficients...

y'' - (4/x)y' + (6/x^2)y = 0.. the bit im confused about is how to obtain the fundamental solutions to this equation {y1, y2} when the coefficients are not constants. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
