## Main Question or Discussion Point

The question was given: x(t) = (sin2t + sin3t)/2*sint

determine the period. So I converted numerator and denominator into the exponential forms and ended up getting (after flipping, timesing and cancelling)

(exp(j3t)-exp(-j)-exp(j)+exp(-3j)+exp(j4)-exp(-2j)-exp(j2)+exp(-4j)) / 2

which in turn turns into

x(t) = cos(3t) - cos(t) - cos(2t) + cos(4t) if I'm not mistaken

so is there a way of simplifying this into maybe one Cos or something so I can find the period?

Or have I done this question the wrong way?

Thanks heaps!
