More specifically I'm trying to find the Laplace transform of x(t)=[tri(t-1)]e^(-3t)

And I was told you have to convert the tri(t-1) part to a unit impulse and then it become easy.

In that case, start with a ramp t, then figure what must be added to ramp down.

It's a bit like making a square/rectangular function by superimposing step functions, e.g. u(t) - u(t-1).

So would it be ramp(t)+ramp(-t-1)Astronuc said:

If that's the case, then how would you find the Laplace of that when it replaces tri(t-1)?
