# Find an explicit general solution to the following differential equation,x{y}'=2y + ...

## Question:

{eq}Find\, \, an\, \, explicit\,\, general\,\, solution\, \, to\, \, the\,\, following\, \, differential\, \, equation {/eq}

{eq}\mathbf{ x{y}'=2y\, +\, x^{3}cos(x)} {/eq}

## Differential Equation:

Equation with derivative term is called differential equation.

Differential equation of form {eq}\displaystyle y'+Py=Q {/eq} is called linear differential equation.

where, P & Q are constant or function of x.

Solution will be

{eq}\displaystyle y\left(I.F\right)=\int \:Q\left(I.F\right)dx+C {/eq} with integrating factor {eq}\displaystyle I.F=e^{\int \:P\:dx} {/eq}
