$$u(x)=exp\int2 \, dx = e^{2x}$$
What is the question?

is that correct

if so ill proceed
Your integrating factor is correct, but I would use the notation:

$$\displaystyle \mu(x)=\exp\left(2\int \,dx\right)=e^{2x}$$

$$\displaystyle y^\prime +2y =xe^{-2x}, \quad y(1)=0$$
$$u(x)=exp\int2 \, dx = e^{2x}$$

$$\displaystyle y^\prime +2y =xe^{-2x}, \quad y(1)=0$$
obtain u(x)
$$u(x)=exp\int2 \, dx = e^{2x}$$
distribute
$$e^{2x} y'+e^{2x} 2y=e^{2x} xe^{2x}$$
simplify
$$\frac{dy}{dx}(e^{2x} (2y))= 4xe^x$$

not sure

ok

i kinda took some more steps but ...

I think what you mean is:

$$\displaystyle \frac{d}{dx}\left(e^{2x}(2y)\right)$$

Please perform the indicated differentiation (product rule), and see if you get back to the previous step. #### karush

$$\displaystyle y^\prime +2y =xe^{-2x}, \quad y(1)=0$$
obtain u(x)
$$u(x)=exp\int2 \, dx = e^{2x}$$
distribute
$$e^{2x} y'+e^{2x} 2y=e^{2x} xe^{-2x}=x$$
simplify
$$ye^{(-2x)}=\int x dx = \frac{x^2}{2}+c$$
divide
$$y=\frac{x^2 e^{2x}}{2}+ce^{2x}$$
then
$$y(1)=\frac{e^{2}}{2}+ce^2=0 \therefore c=-\frac{1}{2}$$
finally
$$y=\frac{1}{2}(x^2-1)e^2$$

so any oops stuff
