So I'm supposed to verify the solution of the differential equation. The solution is y=e^(x). The differential equation is 3y' + 4y = e^(x). What is the problem asking me to do here?

plug in y to see whether it satisfies the differential equation
y = e^(x)
y' = e^(x)
3y' + 4y = 3e^(x) + 4e^(x) = e^x
so, it does satisfy it.

Oh, okay. I get it now. Thanks!
