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

show whether or not [tex]x(t) = cos(t) + sin(\sqrt{2}*t)[/tex]

is periodic

3. The attempt at a solution

the first period

is

T_{1}= [tex] 2\pi[/tex]

the second period is

T_{2}= [tex]\frac{2\pi}{\sqrt{2}}[/tex]

how can I determine whether it is periodic or not?

in my book(about signals and systems) it doesn't explain how to check this out
