y'(t) - ay(t) = 0 What is the form of the solution? ? I have this ODE: If I'm right, the solutions should be of the form My book, however, says Who's right?
Assuming that n is a constant, you're correct. Your book probably forgot to indicate the proper notation is all. I wouldn't rely too heavily on your books. Your books make mistakes too. Trust yourself sometimes too... -blazed
Brilliant. And how about the equation y' = (y - x)^2 what's the form of the solution here? I find it hard to determine the form of solution of differential equations.
