Solving Initial Value Problems
with Mathematica's Solver

(continued from last page...)

Your interaction should have gone like this:

DSolve[{y''[x]-3y'[x]-10y[x]==0,y[0]==0,y'[0]==1},y[x],x]

DE Solution

So it managed to solve a homogeneous second order linear initial value problem with constant coefficients. We'll now "increase the stakes" a little...
