Homework Help: How to manipulate this expression?

  1. Mar 31, 2008 #1
    After solving a DE by Laplace I was left with

    [tex]\frac{1}{s^3}[/tex]

    Now I have a formula for [tex] \frac{n!}{s^{n+1}}[/tex]

    which could be [tex]\frac{2}{s^{2+1}}[/tex]

    Now if I just multiply the [tex]\frac{2}{s^{2+1}}[/tex]

    by a factor of 1/2, is that the same same as my original?

    Sorry if this is a stupid question.

    Yes.
    And I think someone once said that there are no stupid questions.
    Cheers.
