L-1(1/(s+2)3)
I don't see this one in the table. How do I solve the inverse Laplace transform?

I know from class notes that the answer is (1/2) t2e-2t
But I don't know to get it.
Thanks!

I assume that [tex]\mathcal{L}^{-1}\left[ \frac{1}{s^3} \right][/tex] is in your table?

If so, just begin by applying the frequency shift rule:

[tex]\mathcal{L}^{-1}\left[ f(s+a) \right]=e^{-at}\mathcal{L}^{-1}\left[ f(s) \right][/tex]

ok, thanks. That gives me
[tex]\frac{1}{(e^{-2t}L^{-1}(s))^3}[/tex]

And the table gives for [tex]L^{-1}\frac{1}{s^3}[/tex] as [tex]\frac{t^2}{2}[/tex]

What do I do from here?

How do you get that ugly expression?

You should get

[tex]\mathcal{L}^{-1}\left[ \frac{1}{(s+2)^3} \right]=e^{-2t}\mathcal{L}^{-1}\left[ \frac{1}{s^3} \right]
[/tex]
