In Section $5.3.$ the following equations are given, which we will use in the Exercise:

\begin{align*} &y''+\dfrac{1-2a}{x}y'+\left(b^2c^2 x^{2c-2}+\dfrac{a^2-p^2c^2}{x^2}\right)y=0\, , \hspace*{8mm} p\geq 0 \tag{20} \\ &y=x^a\left[c_1J_p(bx^c) +c_2Y_p(bx^c)\right] \tag{21}\\ \end{align*}

We will also use the following equations

\begin{align*} J_{\frac{1}{2}}(x)&=\sqrt{\dfrac{2}{\pi x}} \sin x \tag{26} \\ J_{-\frac{1}{2}}(x)&=\sqrt{\dfrac{2}{\pi x}} \cos x \tag{27} \\ \end{align*}

From the Exercise we have a given differential equation

\begin{align*} 16x^2y''+32xy'+\left(x^4-12\right)y&=0\\ y''+\dfrac{32x}{16x^2}\cdot y'+\dfrac{x^4-12}{16x^2}\cdot y&=0\\ y''+\dfrac{2}{x}\cdot y'+\left(\dfrac{x^2}{16}-\dfrac{3}{4x^2}\right)y&=0\\ \end{align*}

We compare the given differential equation with equation $(20)$, and we can conclude that:

\begin{align*} 1-2a&=2\\ b^2c^2&=\dfrac{1}{16}\\ 2c-2&=2\\ a^2-p^2c^2&=-\dfrac{3}{4}\\ \end{align*}
