    You need to apply the "frequency division" rule :

    [tex]{ \cal L} \{ tf(t) \} = (-1) F^{'}(s)[/tex]

    [tex]{ \cal L} \{ t^nf(t) \} = (-1)^n F^{(n)}(s)[/tex]


    [tex]{ \cal L} \{ f(t) \} = F(s)[/tex]

    and in this case

    [tex]f(t) = 1[/tex]


    edit : all rules can be found here
