c have to be zero since et is an positive increasing function of t.

30) Find the value of y0 for which the solution of the initial value problem
$$y′−y=1+3\sin(t)\qquad y(0)=y_0$$
remains finite as $t\to \infty$.

It's clearly to see that the integrating factor is $e^{-t}$.        OK. V.I.

Then $y(t) = e^{t}\int e^{-t } \bigl(1 + 3\sin(t)\bigr)\,dt + ce^t$,                      I fixed it
which can be easily solved as implies
$$y(t) = - 1 - \frac{3}{2}\bigl(\sin(t) + \cos(t)\bigr) + ce^t$$
But how can we interpret the term "remains finite as $t\to \infty$" into algebraic language  for solving this initial value problem?
