Hi, I am new to Mathematica, so this question might sounds stupid.
I am trying to solve a differential equation.
y''-4y'+40y=Cos(Pi*x)

I solved it on Mathematica 5.2 with following:
DSolve[f''[x]-4f'[x]+40f[x]=Cos[Pi*x],f[x],x]

The program gave me a very long result (please see attachment)

Is there a way to make mathematica give me a simpeflies solution? I need to put it on paper, so that solution displayed at above won't work for sure.

Thank you
