Integration?

posted by .

given that y=Ae^kx, where A and k are constants, find an expression for dy/dx. Hence find the value of k and of A for which dy/dx - 3y = 4e^2x

okay, i know the first part is dy/dx=Ake^kx

but how do i do the second part? find A and k?

  • Integration? -

    if y=Ake^kx then

    Ake^kx -3Ae^kx=4e^2x

    dividing by e^kx

    Ak-3A=4(e^(2x-kx))

    If A,k are constants, then the exponential term has to go to zero (Ak-3A) has to equal a constant...

    or k=2 to do that, then
    2A-3A=4 which solves A
