Can't figure how to properly connect speakers to Samsung Smart TV

So I've got a Samsung 40KU6092 and a Logitech Z506 Surround audio system. The speakers are working perfectly and the TV is outputting sound through its speakers, but it won't output when I switch to external.

Thing is, this particular TV doesn't have a "standard" 3.5mm jack 99% of modern devices have.

If I connect them using the black and yellow 3.5mm and switch the source to external on the TV, I get no sound, as I believe it is outputting through the optical port. Not sure I'm right though.

I know I could just get a Bluetooth audio receiver or a digital - analog sound converter, but I'd like to avoid any additional expenses if possible.

So, how should I connect the speakers to the TV?

I've attached photos of the TV and audio system's ports.

You're right, The RCA are input and the available option is through optical.
You can add a digital to analog converter like https://www.amazon.co.uk/Eazy2hD-Digital-Decoder-Converter-Convert-Black/dp/B01DA2CBDI or
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tendak-Digital-Decoder-Converter-Optical/dp/B076J8H1BP/ref=sr_1_16?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1514555339&sr=1-16&keywords=Digital+Audio+Decoder+to+Analog+5.1+Converter
or different, with 5.1 analog output.

Then what are those two jacks for? No way I could use them somehow instead of buying additional hardware?
