1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

So I am tasked with answer #3 and #4. I have supplied the indicated parenthesis of 8 also with the image.

Here is my thinking:
Take the fourier series for |sin(θ)|.
Let θ = 0 and we see a perfect relationship.
sin(0) = 0 and cos(0) = 1.
So with just a little algebra and setting sin(θ) = the fourier series of sin(θ) We can easily show #3 part 1.
Similiarly, with setting θ = pi/2 we can solve for #3 part b.

I ask this question, even tho I have perfect results, as this seems too simple and I feel like I haven't used anything here. Is this really what the question is asking?

Oh, HELL yes.
It feels so good to be able to solve one of my homework problems in less than 4 minutes for a change :D.
MAN I feel great.

Thank you.
