Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.

Lf(t) = ∫_{0∞} t e^{t}e^{-st}dt = ∫te ^{
-(s-a)t} dt (from 0 to ∞).

Divide and multiply t and dt in the integral by (s-a), introduce new variable z = (s-a)t to come up with the following integral:

Lf(t) = (1/(s-a)^{2}) ∫(0,∞) ze^{-z} dz.

You can make sure that the integral (if integrated in parts) equals 1 (-e^{-z} with upper limit z=∞ minus -^{e-z} with z=0). Thus, your answwer is

Lf(t) = 1/(s-a)^{2}
