## Question

The input x[n] and the output y[n] of a system are related by the equation

$y[n]=x[n-1]+x[1-n].$

No, this system is time variant. $x[n] \to \Bigg[ time\ delay\ n_0 \Bigg] \to y[n]=x[n-n_0] \to \Bigg[ system \Bigg] \to z[n]=y[n-1]+y[1-n]=x[(n-1)-n_0]+x[(1-n)-n_0]$

$x[n] \to \Bigg[ system \Bigg] \to y[n]=x[n-1]+x[1-n] \to \Bigg[ time\ delay\ n_0 \Bigg] \to z[n]=y[n-n_0]=x[(n-n_0)-1]+x[1-(n-n_0)]$

$=x[n-1-n_0]+x[1-n+n_0]\,$

The second term in the last equation has a factor of $+n_0$, so the two are not equal, therefore this system is time variant.

TA's comment: Correct. This system is a time-varying system. Good job!
