Calculate ZIR(t) for the system described for the following differential equation, where the initial condition is y(0-) = 5:

2. Relevant equations

2y' + 3y = 2x' + x(t-1)

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm pretty sure we're supposed to laplace-transform it, then find Y/X = H(s) then inverse back to time domain.

2*(s*Y - 5) + 4*Y = 2*(s*X) + X*exp(-s)

cannot be solved for Y/X, which makes me think I somehow messeed up the initial transform, or perhaps the method altogether
