Calculus question?

I am struggling to do the intitial value problem:

t^2 du/dt = e^(-ut)

My question is on the LHS can get rid of the t^2 by dividing by t^2 on both sides? If i can then i can complete, if not then please assist! Thanks!

    Yep, ordinary algebra.  Divide both sides by the same value and the equation remains balanced.  The LHS still = the RHS.  So divide away and enjoy.

    I hereby give you permission to divide both sides by t^2.
