Find the fourier transform of x(t) = e^{-t}sin(t), t >=0.

We're barely 3 weeks into my signals course, and my professor has already introduced the fourier transform. I barely understand what it means, but I just want to get through this problem set.

2. Relevant equations

I honestly don't know. I know it's an improper integral with bounds -∞ and ∞, that is

∫x(t)e^{-j2∏t}dt

3. The attempt at a solution

I get something VERY LONG which does not seem right.
