## Homework Equations

Find laplace of x(t) and h(t)
Multiply the laplaced values to get Y(s)
Find inverse laplace to get y(t)

## The Attempt at a Solution

In book the circled term isn't there. Why does that go away?
Book gets y(t) as

In laplace why does the e5t term go away?

You will fin that the answer derives from the convolution integral. That method is valid for all time -∞ < t < ∞. The Laplace transform you're familiar with is most likely the one-sided Laplace transform which assumes x(t) = 0 for t < 0, so not applicable here.

There are two other alternatives: the Fourier transform and the two-sided Laplace transform. The latter is seldom encountered (see footnote) while the Fourier is appropriate and gives the same answer.

[Footnote: Then Brooklyn Poly's Professor John G. Truxal's venerable "Automatic Feedback Control System Synthesis" invokes it in preference to the Fourier].

Thanks. Convolution is better than the fourier route.
