Question 3 Explanation:
\small \begin{aligned} u &=f(x-c y) \\ \frac{\partial u}{\partial x} &=f^{\prime}(x-c y)(1) \\ \frac{\partial u}{\partial y} &=f^{\prime}(x-c y)(-c) \\ &=-c \cdot f^{\prime}(x-c y)\\ &=-c \cdot \frac{\partial u}{\partial x} \\ \therefore \quad \frac{\partial u}{\partial y} & +c \frac{\partial u}{\partial x} =0 \end{aligned}

Question 4 Explanation:
\begin{aligned} \left(d^{2}+16\right) y &=0 \\ A E \text { is } m^{2}+16 &=0 \\ m &=\pm 4 i \end{aligned}
Solution is
$y=c_{1} \cos 4 x+c_{2} \sin 4 x$
\begin{aligned} y' &=-4 c_{1} \sin 4 x+4 c_{2} \cos 4 x \\ y'(0) &=1 \\ 1 &=4 c_{2} \\ c_{2} &=1 / 4 \\ y'(\pi / 2) &=-1 \\ -1 &=-4 c_{1} \sin 2 \pi+4 c_{2} \cos 2 \pi \\ -1 &=0+4 c_{2} \\ c_{2} &=-1 / 4 \end{aligned}
Therefore the given differential equation has no solution.
