Hey everybody

So I'm fairly new to differential equations and this is my first time dealing with one of second order. Therefore if the problem seems easy that's why.

I am supposed to rewrite or reduce the following equation to a system of 1. order differential equations

y''-0.1*y+2=0

and then find a numerical solution where the following is true

y(0)=10 and y'(0)=-1

I'm not necessarily looking for a solution, but rather if someone could forward me to some kind guide or lesson about this.
