A practical problem leads to the investigation of a system of equations in the form $f(x,y,y',z)=0$. The well-known theorem on the solvability of the system of equations in the form $f(x,y,y',z)=0$ applies also to the above system. The condition that the Jacobian $\bold J=\partial t/\partial(y',z)$ is nonzero is, under the corresponding assumptions, sufficient for the existence of a solution $(y(x), y(x))$ of the system. Further the necessity of this condition is proved if the functions $z(x)$ and $y(x)$ are required to be respectively once and twice continuously differentiable. The presented theorem may be applied in mechanics as well as in the theory of electric circuits with concentrated parameters.
