Homework Statement



Find the fourier transform of (1/p)e^{[(-pi*x^2)/p^2]} for any p > 0



Homework Equations



The fourier transform of e^{-pi*x^2} is e^{-pi*u^2}.

The scaling property is given to be f(px) ----> (1/p)f(u/p)



The Attempt at a Solution



Using the information above, I got p*e^{(-pi*u^2)/p}.
On another attempt, I got e^{-pi*p^2 * u^2}.
I am not sure if either one of these is correct. I have a hard time following the scaling property.

We can't tell where you're going wrong if you don't show your work. Posting your final results is virtually useless.
