Homework Help: Discrete Fourier Transforms of Signals

  1. Oct 13, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'd like to see if I have the right line of thinking in my solutions:
    a. The sampling frequency should be such that no aliasing or folding occurs, so it should be twice the frequency of the original signal.
    $$x(t) = -17 -9sin(4\pi t) + 2.6sin(8\pi t) - 4cos(10\pi t)$$, I think sampled at 5Hz.
    b. There should now be four samples...but which four samples should I plot?
    c. There should be 2.5 samples right? Again how should I plot?
