Solution:
Let us assume a solution of the original differential equation as:
y=e^{ax}
Hence the given differential equation becomes:
a^{2}e^{ax}+ae^{2ax}=0 \Rightarrow e^{ax}=-a \Rightarrow y=\frac{logy}{x} \Rightarrow y^{1/y}=e^{x}

Suppose x 1 & x 2 are the point of maximum and the point of minimum respectively of the function f(x) = 2x 3 – 9ax 2 + 12a 2 x + 1 respectively, then for the equally x 2 1 = x 2 to be true...
 
 
The extreme points are attained at f ’(x) = 0 => 6x 2 – 18ax + 12a 2 = 0 => x = 2a, a f ’’(x) = 12x – 18a f ’’(x) 0 if x = 2a Hence the min at x = 2a = x 1 & max at x = a = x 2 The condition...
