"easy" Laplace Transform...help!

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Evaluate L{(e^-2t)*t*sinht}

2. Relevant equations

translation theorem

3. The attempt at a solution

Just to clarify: the contents of the bracket is the product of 3 terms:
e^-2t (e to the power of -2t)

all multiplied together.

I am ok with finding the laplace of 2 term products but with 3 terms I do not know where to begin. All I can think of is that the presence of the euler term suggests the use of the 2nd translation theorem.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: "easy" Laplace Transform...help!

Start with L{sinhkt}, I hope you know what this is.

Now use the fact that L(tf(t)}= -F'(s)

Now just apply the shift property for L{e-2tf(t)}
Re: "easy" Laplace Transform...help!

You can express sinh t in terms of e^t and e^-t. Do that and combine all the exponentials together. That way you can express the whole thing as a sum of Laplace transforms of t at different points.
