Transform the differential equation to find a nontrivial solution such that x(0) = 0. What I have so far after the laplace transform is: Then taking the integral, I have

Try e to the (what you had) The X is found, and then you backtrack to x.

What I have so far after the laplace transform is: Then taking the integral, I have what you got is incorrect! if, as your notation, then since we are given that we will get: thus the transformation of your differential equation is: that will give you where is any constant. so the general solution is: where is any constant. Q.E.D.
