sorry i am new to this site so havent mastered LaTex yet but question is fairly straightforward to write....

The acceleration, x'' , of an object which is moving in a straight line, is

-2x'+2+e^(-t)

where x(t) is the distance travelled (and t is time). Write down the

differential equation for x(t). Find its general solution and then that

solution which satisfies x(0) = 0, x'(0) = 0;

i really cant tell how i am meant to tackle this question

thanks
