The functions $f(x)$ and $g(x)$ satisfy $f(0) = 3,$ $g(0) = 2,$ and

\begin{align*}

f'(x) &= 7f(x) + 2g(x), \\

g'(x) &= -4f(x) + 2g(x).

\end{align*}

Let's consider two functions \(f(x)\) and \(g(x)\) that satisfy the following differential equations:

1. \(f'(x) = 2x\)

2. \(g''(x) = -\sin(x)\)

Let's solve these differential equations and find the expressions for \(f(x)\) and \(g(x)\):

**1. Differential Equation for \(f(x)\):**

Given \(f'(x) = 2x\), we can integrate both sides to find \(f(x)\):

\[\int f'(x) \, dx = \int 2x \, dx\]

\[f(x) = x^2 + C_1\]

Here, \(C_1\) is the constant of integration.

**2. Differential Equation for \(g(x)\):**

Given \(g''(x) = -\sin(x)\), we can integrate twice to find \(g(x)\):

\[\int g''(x) \, dx = \int -\sin(x) \, dx\]

\[g'(x) = \cos(x) + C_2\]

Integrate again:

\[\int g'(x) \, dx = \int (\cos(x) + C_2) \, dx\]

\[g(x) = \sin(x) + C_2x + C_3\]

Here, \(C_2\) and \(C_3\) are constants of integration.

So, the expressions for \(f(x)\) and \(g(x)\) are:

\[f(x) = x^2 + C_1\]

\[g(x) = \sin(x) + C_2x + C_3\]

These expressions satisfy the given differential equations. Keep in mind that the constants of integration (\(C_1\), \(C_2\), and \(C_3\)) can take any real values, and the solutions may have different forms based on the specific values of these constants.
