    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Solve the initial value problem

    8(t+1) dy/dt - 5y = 15t,

    for t > -1 with y(0) = 18.

    2. Relevant equations
    First-order linear differential equation.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    My latest attempt at a solution is attached as MyWork.jpg.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated as always!
    Thanks in advance!
