Since the graph of y=5 is a horizontal line, any line perpendicular to a horizontal line is a vertical line, whose equation can be written in the form x=a. Since it passes through the point (5,4), so the equation is:
x=5

Consider a 3rd order linear homogeneous DE of the form
L u = u + a 2 ( x ) u + a 1 ( x ) u + a 0 ( x ) u = f ( x )         ( 1 )
and for which u 1 = e x and u 2 = e 2 x are solutions to the homogeneous form of (1).
Let f ( x ) = 10 e 2 x . Give an example of a form of a 2 , a 1 and a 0 such that (1) has a stable equilibrium point and an example such that (1) has no stable equilibrium point.
My attempt:
When I think of stability, I immediately think of eigenvalues (nodes etc). Hence I reduced (1) into a system of linear equations:
d u d t = y , d y d t = z , d z d t = a 2 z a 1 y a 0 u .
This gives a corresponding matrix
A = ( 0 1 0 0 0 1 a 0 a 1 a 2 ) .
But after working with this, I feel as if I'm not on the right track. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

How to solve this linear pde for y ( x ) (other functions are known and λ is a constant):
d d x ( g ( x ) y ( x ) ) = λ 2 g ( x ) y ( x )
Everything I know about this equation is that it is called the Sturmian equation. I did some research, but the theory, which is for a more general form of the equation, is too hard for me to understand.
