So I've attempted this problem sooo many times! And I don't know where I'm going wrong. I've also consulted many friends in my class and they're also stuck. So here it goes....

du/dt = e^(2.6t-3.1u), u(0)= 1.9

Find u(t).

So what I did was:

du/dt = e^(2.6t)/e^(3.1u)

e^(3.1u) du = e^(2.6t) dt

INTEGRATE BOTH SIDES

1/3.1 (e^3.1u) = 1/2.6 (e^2.6t) + C

and then I solved for C:

C= (1/3.1)e^(5.89) - (1/2.6)

and then my u(t) equation was:

[(2.6t(ln(1/2.6)) + 5.89(ln(1/3.1)) - ln (1/2.6))/(ln(1/3.1))]/(3.1)

which is wrong.

so if anyone can help out that would be great!!
