Solving Systems

Exercise 1: Solution Graphs

When solving:

System Initial Conditions
x' = - x + 2y
y' = 2x - 3y
x(0) = 1
y(0) = 2

on the interval -1 ≤ t ≤ 2, the graphs of the components of your solution should look like these:


Graph of the x-component of the Solution


Graph of the y-component of the Solution

If you didn't get graphs similar to these, then obviously you should check over your calculations, and try again. When you're done looking you can return to the Exercises...
