Hi I have a problem I need to solve for a class soon.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

The prof gave a us a hw problem where he gives us a state space representation for one system and connect it in cascade to another system and need the equivalent state space parameters: I'm pretty confused.

Heres the question:

x(t)----> |system1 | --> y(t) --> |system2 |----> z(t)

system 1 is defined by:

dq1(t)/dt = A1(t)q1(t) + B1(t)x(t)

y(t) = C1(t)q1(t)

system 2 is defined by:

dq2(t)/dt = A2(t)q2(t) + B2(2)y(t)

z(t) = C2(t)q2(t)

the combination of the system is defined:

dq(t)/dt = A(t)q(t) + B(t)x(t)

z(t) = C(t)q(t)

It says find q(t), A(t), B(t), and C(t) in similar quantities for the separate systems.
