### Re: Differential Eqns: particular soln to xy' + 4y = 15xcox(x^5)

$y(\pi)=\frac{3\sin(\pi^5)}{\pi^4}+\frac{c}{\pi^4}=0$

solve for $c$
$\Leftrightarrow \frac{3\sin(\pi^5)}{\pi^4}=-\frac{c}{\pi^4}\Leftrightarrow -3\sin(\pi^5)=c$

I don't understand why it isn't c =0

So then the final answer would be c=0

and y= 3 sin(x^5)/x^4?
but does $y(\pi)=0$ for this function? no it doesn't.

So then the final answer would be 3 sin(x^5)/x^4 -3 sin(pi^5)/x^4?

### Re: Differential Eqns: particular soln to xy' + 4y = 15xcox(x^5)

So the final answer would be y = 3 sin(x^5) - 3 sin (pi^5)

no...what you had before is the correct answer...you don't remove the x^4 that is on the bottom.
