This article is devoted to investigate some properties of solutions for several systems of complex differential-q-difference equations. Some results about the existence and the estimate for the growth of solutions for a series of systems of q-difference–differential equations are obtained. Moreover, it is a very satisfactory fact that some examples are given to illustrate the existence of solutions for such systems in each case of some results.
