The total solution may be divided into a natural and forced response, just like we did before. The natural response is those components of the total response which have the natural modes of the system. The forced response is everything else (which must necessarily come from the forcing function).

For the last example,

\begin{displaymath}y[k] = .644(-.2)^k + 6.61(.8)^k -1.26(.25)^k \end{displaymath}
