(Since you are using "y1", "y2", and "y3" as subscripts, it would be better to write t^2 for "t squared".) "-t y2" is -t times y2 so that would be $\displaystyle \begin{bmatrix} y_1 \\ y_2 \\ y_3\end{bmatrix}= \begin{bmatrix}-1 & 5 & 1 \\ 3 & -1 & 0 \\ 0 & -t & 2\end{bmatrix}\begin{bmatrix} y_1 \\ y_ 2 \\ y_3\end{bmatrix}+ \begin{bmatrix}0 \\ t^2 \\ 0 \end{bmatrix}$.
