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 Hi iam new to the forum and still unsure how to make the equations the correct format so hope you can understand what I have typed. I have Tried to Convert the original equation into the equation below to try and use the partial fractions method but getting nowhere. 3s+9. s^2+6s+16 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.
