Solve the differential equation

y" - 4y' + 4y = {eq}e^{-2t} {/eq} + sin2t.

## Question:

Solve the differential equation

y" - 4y' + 4y = {eq}e^{-2t} {/eq} + sin2t.

## Differential Equation:

The general function of a differential equation consists of a complimentary and a particular solution.

A particular solution can be obtained by assigning specific values to the arbitrary constants. The complementary solution is the only solution to the homogeneous differential equation. We are after a solution to the non homogeneous differential equation wherein the initial conditions must satisfy that solution instead of the complementary solution.
