    \[\frac{ du }{ dt }=e ^{6u+8t}\] given that u(0)=8. So this is how I set it up \[\int\limits_{}^{}e ^{-6u}du=\int\limits_{}^{}e ^{8t}dt\]

    Is that right so far?

    Okay, so this is what I got for my integration: \[\frac{ -e ^{-6u} }{ 6 }=\frac{ e ^{8t} }{ 8 }+c\]

    and then using that u(0)=8, I found that c=-0.125.

    I actually have already worked through this problem, but I got the wrong answer at the end so I'm trying to figure out where I'm going wrong

    so then I end up with \[\frac{ -e ^{-6u} }{ 6 }=\frac{ e ^{8t} }{ 8 }-0.125\]

    so then my final answer was u(t)=\[\frac{ 1 }{ 6 }\ln(\frac{ 3 }{ 4 }e ^{8t}-\frac{ 3 }{ 4 })\]

    well, it's actually webwork, so it just tells me that my answer is wrong, I'm not sure what the right answer is

    I'm thinking something must be wrong with the way I'm doing the algebra to rearrange it in terms of u(t)?
