Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and this is the table I used: http://tutorial.math.lamar.edu/pdf/Laplace_Table.pdf

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use partial fractions on the \[\frac2{s(s+1)(s+4)}\]part and I think it should be pretty straightforward to do inverse Laplace

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but what I do about the 4/s^2+4s

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0factor out the s and that is what I wrote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh I see; same thing though factor out s and do partial fractions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but then you get 4/(s(s+4)>4/s[1/s+4)> 4e^(4t)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac4{s^2+4s}=\frac As+\frac B{s+4}\implies A(s+4)+Bs=4\]\[A=1~~~,B=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so you do partial fractions with both of them

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and for the other one it's A(s^2+4s) B(s+1) right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then you get As^2+5As+4A+Bs^2+4Bs+Cs^2+C=2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not necessary I don't think plug in s=1,4,and 0 and I think you can get the values quickly

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you dont need ti distribute it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i didnt get the answers yet i thiught you had to distribute it then ge tthe answers but now i see that its unnecessary

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac4{s^2+4s}=\frac As+\frac B{s+4}\implies A(s+4)+Bs=4\]now plug in\[s=0:A(0+4)+B(0)=4 \implies 4A=4\implies A=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is the second term:\[\frac4{s^2+4s}=\frac As+\frac B{s+4}\implies A(s+4)+Bs=4\]now plug in\[s=4:A(4+4)+B(4)=4\implies 4B=4\implies B=1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[A(s+1)(s+4)+Bs(s+4)+Cs(s+1)=2\]\[s=1:3B=2\implies B=\frac23\]\[s=4:12C=2\implies C=\frac16\]\[s=0:4A=2\implies A=\frac12\]yes I guess you are right :)
