1. Find the Laplace transform of 6 cos t + 2e −3t .

We know that Laplace transform of cos at = a/a^2 + s^2 and Laplace transform of exp(at) = 1/s-a.
Using linear property L(aƒ + bg) = aL(ƒ) + bL(g) where a and b are constants.
Then the Laplace transform of 6cost + 2e^-3t = 6L(cost) + 2L(e^-3t) = 6/s^2 + 1 + 2/s + 3
