Initial Value Problems Exercises

Example 1

Determine if the function y = 4e -x is a solution to the IVP

y" + y ' = 0 and y(0) = 4.

Example 2

Determine if the function f (x) = x3 is a solution to the IVP

3f (x) = xf '(x) and f (0) = 2.

Example 3

Determine if the function y = x + 2 is a solution to the IVP

Example 4

Determine if the function f (x) = sin x is a solution to the IVP

f (3)(x) = -f '(x) and f (0) = 0.

Example 5

Determine if the function y = x2 + 4x is a solution to the IVP
