## Question:

Find the general solution of {eq}y''-12y'+36y=0 {/eq} and also find the solution that satisfies the initial conditions {eq}y(0)=5 {/eq} and {eq}y'(0)=0 {/eq}.

## Solve the Differential Equation:

Differential equation of form {eq}\phi \left(D\right)y=f\left(x\right) {/eq} has solution in two parts i.e complementary function {eq}y_c {/eq} and particular integral {eq}y_p {/eq}.

Use the initial conditions to find the values of constants.

Given equation is

{eq}\displaystyle y''-12y'+36y=0 {/eq}

==> {eq}\displaystyle \frac{d^2y}{dx^2}-12\:\frac{dy}{dx}+36y=0 {/eq}

==>...
