My friends and I have be struggling with this question for a substantial amount of time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

%Consider the mass-damper system with dead zone as depicted in Figure E.1. %The motion of the system is described by the following combination of %equations: %my" + 2cy' + k(y + b) = F(t), y<-b %my" + 2cy' = F(t), -b<=y<=b %my" + 2cy' + k(y - b) = F(t), y>b

%%
%(a) Rewrite the above as a single equation using the heaviside function.
