Obtain the differential equation by eliminating arbitrary constants from the following equations.

y = (c1 + c2 x) ex

#### Solution

y = (c1 + c2 x) ex

∴ ye -x = c1 + c2x

Differentiating w.r.t. x, we get

y (-e^-x) + e ^-x  dy/dx = 0 + c_2

∴e^-x(dy/dx - y) = c_2

Again, differentiating w.r.t. x, we get

e^-x((d^2y)/dx^2-dy/dx) - e^-x(dy/dx-y) = 0

∴e^-x((d^2y)/dx^2-dy/dx - dy/dx+ y) = 0

∴(d^2y)/dx^2 - 2dy/dx + y = 0
