I am trying to analyze a set of differential eqn's; however, I cannot get a basic initial value problem to work. I try:

DSolve[{y'[x]+4*y==20,y[0]==2},y[x],x]

Solving by hand, it should give:

y = -3Exp[-4 x]+5

However, it returns:

"Equation or list of equations expected instead of False in the first argument..."

Any ideas on how to get it to work?

Thanks!
