## Homework Statement

I have a periodic function which has a period 2, which is defined as

f(x) = ( 1.7(x + 1) , -1 ≤ x < 0 With f(x+2) = f(x) for all x

( 1.7(x - 1), 0 < x ≤ 1

I have to determine a

_{0}

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have started this as

a

_{0}= 1/T ∫ top limit = T/2 Bottom limit = -T/2 f(x) dx

= 1/2 ∫ top limit = 0 Bottom limit = -1. 1.7(x+1) dx + ∫Top limit 1, Bottom limit 0 1.7(x-1) dx.

Is this right what I am doing so far, the 1.7(x+1) and 1.7(x-1) part is confusing me should I make it 1.7x+1 and 1.7x-1 ? And how would I integrate them?
