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

    Question: Find the fourier series for

    f(x) = x(2π-x) 0<x<2π f(x) = f(x+2π)

    hope the pi is clear as π

    3. The attempt at a solution

    The constant term should be ##2\pi^2/3##, but other than that, your answer looks fine.

    One easy way to check your answer is to simply plot the series using a computer.

    By the way, you're finding a Fourier series, not a Fourier transform, which is a different but related concept.
