Series solution of xy+2yxy=0
I get r(r+1)=0,(r+1)(r+2)c1=0 and
The first equation gives the indicial roots r=1 and r=0. The case for r=0 is fine.
For r=1, I don't see how c1=0 is implied by the second equation. The way I see it, since 1+r=0 when r=1,c1 is not necessarily zero here, but this leads to a different solution to what is in the text book. What am I missing? Why is c1 forced to be zero?

As you already found a basis solution for r=0, you need just one other. Setting c1 in the case r=1 to some non-zero value will just add a multiple of the first, r=0, basis solution, so nothing new gets found.
Note that your DE can be written as (xy)(xy)=0,
so that the solution you find are y1(x)=sinh(x)x and y2(x)=cosh(x)x

Convert unit measures for a problem from zill book
I have the solution, but I don't understand it, I don't understand the part which implies the conversion of unit measures. I know that I can g=32fts2, but then what? So my questions are:
1. how to compute (convert unit measures) 4pound32fts2 to become 18?
pound is a unit measure for weight, ft is for distance (like meter), s is for time. So, how they (in image) simplify that raport - division?
2. Then, for the next step: I know that ω2=km, with m=18 slug and k=16lbft. But what about this division:
And again, how can I make this division? lb and slug are units of measure for weight and ft is for distance. How can I reduce them?

Second order differential inequality and comparison theorem.
If x:[0,1]R,xC that satisfies
is it true that x0 on [0,1]?
I observed that if x0, then x¨0, so x is concave. However I could not find out any other properties. I think if there exists a solution of the following differential equation
then some kind of comparative theorem can be used. However, there is no non-trivial solution for this.
If the above proposition is incorrect, could you give me a counterexample?
