# y = e^x + Ax^2 +Bx+ C#

#### Explanation:

This is a third order separable differential equation which we can solver by repeated integration, (or separating the variables):

# (d^3y)/(dx^3)=e^x #

Integrating we get

# (d^2y)/(dx^2)=e^x + A#

And a second time:

# (dy)/(dx) = e^x + A_1x +B#

And a third time:

# y = e^x + A_1x^2/2 +Bx+ C#

So we can write the GS as;

# y = e^x + Ax^2 +Bx+ C#
