1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Determine the inverse Laplace transform 2. Relevant equations 3s+9/(s+3)^2+7 3. The attempt at a solution Converted to 3s+9/s^2+6s+16 to try and use the partial fractions method but getting nowhere. I'm Not sure if Iam making the question more difficult, can't seem to put the division side of the equestion into brackets. Attempt was (s-2)(s+8) but that results in s^2+6s-16 resulting in an incorrect sign. Can't seem to change the signs to make it correct. Not sure if partial fractions method is the best method or if I'm making it more difficult than it is. Any advice much appreciated.
