    Step function

    Can someone tell me the region where h(3 - 2t) is equal to 1? I know how to do it if the number in front of the t is 1 and if it was t - a constant but not sure what happens here

    Assuming you mean the Heaviside step function there, it's 1 when the argument is non-negative. That is, when 3-2t\ge 0. Can you finish from here?

    Yeah I mean Heaviside step function:

    so 3 - 2t >= 0
    -2t >= -3
    t <= 3/2 ?
