# Second order linear differential equation, stuck on particular integral Watch

Announcements
1. The question is:
General solution of
d^2y/dx^2−4dydx+4y=2e^2x
I have got the complementary function as (A+Bx)e2x=0 but when finding the Particular integral I substitute back I am getting zero? I have tried both y=Ce2xand Cxe2x ?

I tried Cx^2e^2x because I realised it needs to be independent of the homogeneous equation but then I get two variables C and x to solve in the end?

Sorry, don't know how to do latex.

Second derivitive of y is wrong.
