Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a second order differential equation with a solution in the form:

[tex]f(t) = Ae^{t}+Bte^{t}[/tex]

I want to solve for t, ie. work out for what value of t does the function f(t) have a particular value. But there seems to be no way (that I know of) to do this. Can anyone give me any pointers to what to do here?

Thanks.
