That's some of the easiest math you'll ever learn. There's no thinking work involved. Learn this. You'll thank your lucky stars work was this easy when you move on to calculating mortgages and permutations and the like.

Lets see, if we take the square of the hypotenuse of a equalateral triangle and multiply it by 2pi r squared with r being UTC time 15 minutes ago, divide by Plank's constant, subtract the gravitational constant, factoring E=mc squared, will give you.... not what you are looking for.

Sorry, I only help my son with his math homework, and only by showing him examples, make him work 2 or 3 examples and then I make him work the original problem. By then he either knows it, or doesn't want me to help him anymore.

No one will give you the answer, but if it can help: develop, then reduce. It always works.

I just did that in me head and I'll give you a hint: order of operations.

And trust me, if a dumb-ass biochemist like me can work it in her head, it's pretty basic...

Damn, you're right, I just decide to take a few seconds to look at that, and did the whole in my address bar (needed a digital scratch pad). It's very simple - just spend a little bit of time on it.

First take Leplace transforms of both sides, carry out a Fourier analysis and integrate the result.

Oh sorry, you wanted to simplify it...
