Find a general solution to the DE


Cww "!Cw #'C !
Solve the auxiliary equation 7# "!7 #' !.
We can use the quadratic formula to find 7.
"! "!! %a#'b

Recall that if + 3, are solutions to the auxiliary equation
then /+B aG" -9= ,B G# =38 ,Bb are solutions to the De.
Therefore the general solution to the DE is
C /&> aG" -9= > G# =38 >b

Aww %Aw 'A !
The auxiliary equation is 7# %7 ' ! .
We can solve this equation be completing the square.

Find a general solution to the DE


a) Cwww Cww Cw $C !
7$ 7# 7 $ !
7 " is a solution.
Using synthetic division we get
1 -1 1 3 \ -1

-1 2 -3
--------------------------1 -2 3 0
7$ 7# 7 $ a7 "ba7# #8 $b !
7 " or 7# #8 $ !
a7 "b# # 7 " # 3
The general solution is

C G" /> /> G# -9= # > G$ =38 $ >


b) Cwww #Cww &Cw #'C !
7$ #7# &7 #' !
The possible integer solutions are
1, 2, 13, and 26 .
Try 7 # o graph C B$ #B# &B #' and you will
see that B # is a zero of the function
