Find the complementary function & the particular integral of the following equation: dy/dx = 2 I don't know how to calculate complementary function and particular integral of this problem. Please help.

The general solution is y=2x+C Obviously, the undefined integration leads directly to the general solution. January 21st, 2014, 04:01 AM   #3

According to my book:

In case of linear differential equation with constant coefficient i.e. (dy/dx) + ay = b,

the complementary function

and the particular integral= b/a

Here a, b and A are constants.

I did understand the way you calculated the complementary function. But I couldn't understand how you calculated the particular integral. Could you please explain step by step?

Thanks a lot! My problem is solved now. Tags complementary, diff, equ, function, integral ,
