How to solve for Y(s)?



Please make sure all parentheses are correct. For example, the right hand side of the equation could be:
(a) 1/s - e-πs/s + s, or (b)  1/s - e-πs/(s + s), or (c) 1/s - e-πs/s + s. 
Because (a) and (b) can be simplified, I'm going to guess it's (c). However, there could be other options.
Well, (c) can be simplified, too, but it's not as apparent.

To solve for Y(s), you would divide by the factor (s²+s+5/4):
Y(s) = ( 1/s-e^(-pi*s)/s+s )/(s²+s+5/4).
I'm assuming there is more to this problem. Your equation looks like the Laplace transform of a differential equation. Are you supposed to find the inverse transform, f(t) ? If so, you would complete the square in the denominator,
s²+s+5/4 = (s+1/2)² + 1,
then split the fraction into three terms, then use standard tables to find the inverse transform.


It's choice C. After dividing s^2+s+5/4 to the other side, how would Y(s) look like?
Y(s) = ( 1/s-e^(-pi*s)/s+s )/(s²+s+5/4)
