Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah 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!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I 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!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x'' + 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 \[ L[x]= \frac{2}{5}\frac{1}{(s+1)} \frac{2}{5}\frac{s7}{s^2+4s+8} \] complete the square on the denominator of the 2nd term to match the laplace tables rewrite the numerator \[ L[x]= \frac{2}{5}\frac{1}{(s+1)} \frac{2}{5}\frac{s+29}{(s+2)^2+2^2} \] rewrite 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
