Consider the differential equation:

{eq}16'' + y = sec(\frac{x}{4}) tan(\frac{x}{4}) {/eq}

Find the general solution of the related homogeneous differential equation. Find the general solution of the nonhomogeneous differential equation.

General Solution:

We have to find the general solution of the second-order differential equation.

For finding the general solution of the equation of the form {eq}ay''+by'+cy=g(x) {/eq}, first, we calculate the general solution of the homogenous equation and then we calculate the particular solution of the non-homogeneous equation and lastly we combine both the results.

{eq}16y'' + y = sec(\frac{x}{4}) tan(\frac{x}{4}) \\ y''+\dfrac{1}{16}y''=\dfrac{1}{16}sec(\frac{x}{4}) tan(\frac{x}{4}) {/eq}

We 'll have...
