y'' + 4y = sin(2t)

y(0) = 1

y'(0) = 1

2. Relevant equations

cramers rule

3. The attempt at a solution

after isolating Y(s) i end up with:

Y(s) = 2 / (s^2+4)^2 + s/(s^2+4)

after i do partial fraction decomposition, i get 4 equations with 4 unknowns, A, B, C and D

i inserted B = 2- 4D into other 3 equations..

when i used cramers rule to get values for A , B and C I am getting zeroes for all three variables. (??) ..also, I noticed that each equation also equals zero, but im not seeing what that might mean?

i am doing something wrong

my 3 equations are:

A + 5C + D = 0

-A -5C + D = 0

2A + 16C -4D = 0

any help is really appreciated...thanks
