# Super difficult FP2 question. Everyone can try watch

1. This is question 4 from paper P6 June 2004. I cannot solve part a) . And for some reason, the mark scheme didnt explain the hardest part.
That would be great if someone can solve it and explain for me.
Thanks

Don't think we will see this amazingly difficult question.

If that's the question then it looks like a perfectly straightforward 2nd order linear DE question.

The only complication in these problems arises if the RHS is some linear combination of the complementary function, but it doesn't look like the case here, so I can't see where there would be a problem.]

Without working the thing through, I'm guessing that the CF has an exponential factor which goes to zero for large x, so the dominant behaviour will be that of the particular integral.

Really need to see some working from the OP to see where the 'difficulty' lies!

The hard part was prove it is true for k+1.
