Matrices and Linear Systems

  1. Mar 5, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Write the given system in the form [tex]x'=P(t)x + f(t)[/tex]

    [tex]x'=-3y , y'=3x[/tex]


    2. Relevant equations
    [tex]x'=P(t)x + f(t)[/tex]
    [tex]x(t)=c_1x_1(t)+c_2x_2(t)+...+c_nx_n(t)[/tex]

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I have no idea how to start this since my teacher never covered this in our notes and the book doesn't give an example of this type of problem. Please help!
