## Homework Statement

This is my first post, so bear with me. I have seen others who have posted their questions and the problem looked like it was typed in mathcad or something. How do I do that?

Ok so I'm trying to figure out how to solve a piecewise Laplace transform when f(t)=t

the actual problem is

f(t)={t, 0<t<1 (should be read as 0 less than or equal to t...)

{1, t>1 (should be read as t greater than or equal to 1)

## Homework Equations

L{f(t)}= integral of e

^{-st}f(t)dt

## The Attempt at a Solution

My attempt. Please help me figure out how I can make this show up as it would in person. (with the integral sign, exponents, etc.)

=integral from 0 to 1 of e

^{-st}tdt + integral from 1 to infinity of e

^{-st}dt

=-1/s(e

^{-s})(1/2) + 1/s(e

^{-s})

=(-e

^{-s}/2) + ((1/s)e

^{-s})

the correct answer should be =(1/s

^{2}) - (e

^{-s}/s

^{2})

I appreciate the patience everyone.
