In this paper we consider the generalized impulsive system with Riemann-Liouville fractional-order q ∈ (1,2) and obtained the error of the approximate solution for this impulsive system by analyzing of the limit case (as impulses approach zero), as well as find the formula for a general solution. Furthermore, an example is given to illustrate the importance of our results.
