I am really struggling with proving a ODE by means of using the integrating factor method.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My original problem was a Laplace transform

q'+2q=5sin(t) where q(0)=0

I believe i have got the correct naswer for this as being:- q= e^-2t +2sint-cost

I just need to confirm this i have my integrating factor as e^2x but after that i am not really sure where to go next.

I am surrounded by piles of paper with varying answers on, non of which are the same as the one above.

Please please help someone.
