ABSTRACT
The article discusses an evolutionary method to Laplace transform. It describes an approach for which Laplace transform can be used. It presents solutions of a differential equation using an integrating factor and the exponential transform of a function. It also presents solutions using Laplace transforms and general integral transforms.
