(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

How would I solve a two-level system such as this:

[tex]y_1'=-ay_1+by_2[/tex]

[tex]y_2'=-ay_2-by_1+c[/tex]

where a b and c are constants.

2. Relevant equations

Laplace transform

3. The attempt at a solution

I guess my question is what method would I use to solve this? As in should I solve for y1 in terms of y2 and then plug that back into the second equation? Not too sure about the approach.
