I have only had a one hour lecture on these, so it is hard to think about these.
for the inverse transform use partial fractions to split the expression up. you can check if i did it correctly but i got (1/2)/(s-3) + (1/2)/(s+1). so you should be able to recognize these as laplace transforms of the exponential function. so you should get (1/2)e^(3t) + (1/2)e^(-t).
