I have to take the inverse laplace transform of the above function. Now, I know that I can factor (s^2+5s+6) as (s+3)(s+2) and take the easy way out. However, I did it as above on a test, getting A = -1, B = -1, and C = 1. I then took the inverse laplace transform and got something involving cosh's and sinh's. Doing it the easy way would have gotten you just the exponential e. This problem on the exam was maybe 30+ points and I got 0 points for this problem because I did not realize to factor (s^2+5s+6) and did it the way more complicated way. Is my method justified and most importantly, right?
