    yeah if you put an 8 it looks pretty straightforward as you clearly know what to do. I never finished it though as I am cramming for calculus haha!

    hmm after my partial fractions I'm getting one that is hard to fix into a nice way to inverse laplace

    I can't figure out the answer. I really do apologize but I have a big final coming up and rushed through it. I don't mean to leave you hanging!

    x'' + 4x' +8x= 2*exp(-t), x(0)=0, x'(0)= 4 \[ (s^2+4s+8)L[x] -(s+4)*0 - (1)*4 = \frac{2}{s+1} \] \[ (s^2+4s+8)L[x] = \frac{2}{s+1} +4 \] \[ L[x]= \frac{4s+6}{(s+1)(s^2+4s+8)} \] partial fraction expansion \[ L[x]= \frac{2}{5}\frac{1}{(s+1)} -\frac{2}{5}\frac{s-7}{s^2+4s+8} \] complete the square on the denominator of the 2nd term to match the laplace tables rewrite the numerator \[ L[x]= \frac{2}{5}\frac{1}{(s+1)} -\frac{2}{5}\frac{s+2-9}{(s+2)^2+2^2} \] re-write the last term as 2 fractions that match the Laplace tables. \[ L[x]= \frac{2}{5}\frac{1}{(s+1)} -\frac{2}{5}\frac{s+2}{(s+2)^2+2^2}+\frac{9}{5}\frac{2}{(s+2)^2+2^2} \] \[ x= \frac{2}{5}e^{-t}- \frac{2}{5}e^{-2t}cos(2t)+\frac{9}{5}e^{-2t}sin(2t) \] see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laplace_transform#Table_of_selected_Laplace_transforms

    I just gave the highlights, as this takes quite a bit of work. Ask if you have any questions.
