    Looks an awful lot like homework to me. Even so, try to simplify your expressions. The question isn't actually asking about a trig function, seeing as there's no trig function there. Either something didn't show up or the question's trying to mislead you with its use of 'theta's. You can use long division of polynomials to simplify these expressions.

    For the first use the decomposition xn-1=(x-1)(xn-1+xn-2+...1) for both the numerator and denominator and cancel out the x-1 terms.

    For the second let x=2 for both definitions of f(x) and find k so that they are equal.
