    Ok. So you split up your integrand into two parts, right?

    in this case, you split the integral up into 2 sections

    can you type up your work? then we can see where the mistake might have happened

    theres a shifting method that i can never remember, so i tend to do it the splitted way

    0,2; then 2,inf for starters; and dont forget your "t" on the left side

    \[\large \int_0^2 2te^{-st}\,dt+\int_0^{\infty}4e^{-st}\,dt=2\int_0^2 te^{-st}\,dt+4\int_0^{\infty}e^{-st}\,dt\]Just making it look better :)

    2 to inf on the last one, the long right term is simple enough; the left side is by parts

    for the firsr part the integral ends up equaling (3(1-e^(-2s)(2s+1))/(s^2)

    and the second integral is (e^(-2s))/s

    so (3(1-e^(-2s)(2s+1))/(s^2) +(e^(-2s))/s

    \[2\int_{0}^{2}e^{-st}t+4\int_{2}^{inf}e^{-st}dt\] \[2(\frac{e^{-2s}-1}{s^2})+4\frac{e^{-2s}}{s}\] or some variation of that should work
