Hello all,

I have a question on z-transforms.The question states

"determine the casual signal x(n) having the z-transform

X(z) = 1/(1-2z^-1)(1 - z^-1)^2".

This is how i tried

If i solve this by rewriting as

X(z)/z = z^2 /(z-2)(z-1)^2 and using partial fractions

i get x(n) as 4(2^n) u(n) - 3u(n) - nu(n).

But if i try to find the value by writing the partial fractions for the given function as it is

(i.e) A/(1 - 2z^-1) + B/(1 - z^-1) + C /(1 - z^-1)^2

i get A,B,C as 4,-2,-1

and hence x(n) as 4(2^n) - 2u(n) - n u(n).As seen i get the coefficient as -2 instead of -3 for the second term.

So is it right on my part to take partial fractions as i have done in the second case and solve the given function in z-inverse as it is or it should be solved after converting to a function in z instead of z^-1?

Thank you
