    Take t=1 for example: You know that 1=x(-2*1+1)=x(-1).
    Does that help?

    Hi baby_1, try taking it in baby steps :wink: One simple transformation at a time.

    - See if you can deduce what x(-2t) would be. Hint x(-2t+1) = x(-2(t-0.5)).

    - From there you can probably figure out x(2t).

    - From there you can try to deduce what x(t) will look like.
