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}

position vectors of points A, B and C are 3i-2j-k, 2i+3j-4k, -i+j+2k and 4i+5j+ak respectively. if points A, B, C and D lie on a plane, find the value of a.
 
 
AB=B-A= 2i+3j-4k- ( 3i-2j-k ) = -i+5j+3k BC=C-B=-3i-2j+6k CD=5i+4j+(a-2)k z= AB*BC=36 i + 15j -13 k z.cd= 180+60-13a+26=0 a=266/13
