## Simple question [Signals and Systems]

Hi

The following question is from Oppenheim/Wilsky/Nawab chapter 1.

Consider a periodic signal

$$x(t) = 1$$ for $$0 \leq t \leq 1$$
$$x(t) = -2$$ for $$1 < t <2$$

with period $T = 2$. The derivative of this signal is related to the impulse train

$$g(t) = \sum_{k = -\infty}^{\infty}\delte(t-2k)$$

with period T = 2. It can be shown that

$$\frac{dx(t)}{dt} = A_{1}g(t-t_{1}) + A_{2}g(t-t_{2})$$

Determine the values of $A_{1}$, $t_{1}$, $A_{2}$, and $t_{2}$.

I got stuck with this one. Anyway here's my solution. Would appreciate any help in solving the problem.

$$x(t) = \sum_{k = -\infty}^{\infty}(u(t-2k) - u(t-2k-1)) + (-2)(u(t-2k-1) - u(t-2k-2))$$

so

$$x(t) = \sum_{k = -\infty}^{\infty}u(t-2k) - 3\sum_{k = -\infty}^{\infty}u(t-2k-1)) -2\sum_{k = -\infty}^{\infty}u(t-2k-2)$$

so

$$\frac{dx}{dt} = g(t) - 3g(t-1) - g(t-2)$$

which is wrong...

 Okay I got it graphically, but what if I want to do it algebraically?
