2 − 2)
(b) (5 points) The figure below shows two signals: z(t) and y(t). Can you express y(t) in
terms of z(t)?
3. (22 points) Periodic signals.

the signal is periodic, determine the fundamental period and frequency.

(i.e. x(t) = −x(−t)). What is the value of x(T0)?
(c) (4 points) If x(t) is periodic, are the even and odd components of x(t) also periodic?
4. (21 points) Energy and power signals.
(a) (15 points) Determine whether the following signals are energy or power signals. If the
signal is an energy signal, determine its energy. If the signal is a power signal, determine
i. x(t) = e
ii. x(t) = (
, if t ≥ 1
iii. x(t) = (
1 + e
, if t ≥ 0
(b) (6 points) Show the following two properties:
• If x(t) is an even signal and y(t) is an odd signal, then x(t)y(t) is an odd signal;
• If z(t) is an odd signal, then for any τ > 0 we have:
z(t)dt = 0
Use these two properties to show that the energy of x(t) is the sum of the energy of its
even component xe(t) and the energy of its odd component xo(t) , i.e.,
Ex = Exe + Exo
Assume x(t) is a real signal.

i. Compute the real and imaginary parts of x(t).
ii. Compute the magnitude and phase of x(t).

x3(t) = x1(t)x2(t)
Plot the signals separately (you can use the function subplot) for −3 ≤ t ≤ 3, with a
step size of 0.001.
